Experiment

Gut microbiome in Cat
Summary Data Summary
Investigator Ramsey, Jon
Description Although obesity is common in cats, the relationship with the intestinal
microbiota has not been extensively evaluated. Therefore, this study aims to
determine if alterations in intestinal bacteria are associated with obesity,
energy restriction and neutering in cats by characterizing the fecal microbiota
using 16S rRNA gene sequencing in 8 lean intact, 8 lean neutered and 8 obese
neutered cats before and after 6 weeks of energy restriction.
