Pet FTM Project
Let's give new hope to enteropathic pets, together!
Pet FTM project goals
Easily accessible FMT to enteropathic pets a cani e gatti with lyophilized capsules
FMT more effective with centralized data collection and artificial intelligence
Who can participate to the Pet FMT Project
ENTEROPATHIC DOGS AND CATS
To fight dysbiosis and restore equilibrium and wellbeing.
Participation is possible only if assisted by a veterinarian who joins the project. Discover more
To make the best use of the data we will collect.
Collaborate with us to develop knowledge. We will share the results of Pet FMT Project by publishing them in scientific journals.
Pet lovers can contribute in many ways!
Tell friends about the project or donate your dog or cat's microbiome analysis, or participate in fundraising campaigns.
The future with Pet FMT Project
Fewer unsolved cases
Enteropathies are complex diseases. Knowing and fighting the dysbiosis that generally accompanies enteropathy is a new therapeutic possibility that arises from microbiome research. The course to the custom and precision FMT is plotted.
The effectiveness of antibiotics to treat enteropathies is linked to the effect on intestinal pathogens. But they kill also good bacteria and leaves a mess. FMT has the potential to replace antibiotics in fighting pathogens and positively affect the antibiotic resistance problem.
Chronic enteropathy causes a deterioration in the quality of life of the animal, its owner and it is a complex problem for the veterinarian. The easily accessible and increasingly effective microbiome transplant can restore serenity and well-being to everyone.
Why we do this
Bruno (cover image) is a half-breed foundling dog belonging to one of EuBiome's shareholders; he fell ill with chronic enteropathy at the age of 5. A long journey has begun in search of solutions to his monthly crisis of diarrhea and vomiting. After years of never resolving attempts Bruno underwent a fecal microbiome transplant and today he is fine. We would like the same opportunity to be available to others who, like him, can benefit from this treatment.We are aware that FMT is only in its infancy, that attempts are being made and that the results are mixed. But the results are there, to testify that it is necessary to continue to research, to understand why it sometimes works and sometimes it doesn't, to understand what and how much material to administer, and when. Isn't it true that partial, temporary results and failures also occur with standard protocols? Special diets, probiotics, antibiotics and immunosuppressants. FMT risks have been extensively evaluated in humans, and the most frequent sentence in literature is that "FMT is safe". The risks are considered irrelevant compared to the benefits that can be obtained; moreover dogs and cats are coprophages. Further proof is the fact that there are over 400 FMT clinical trial .
The Pet FMT Project was born with the aim of aggregating people passionate of dogs, cats and microbiome, to accelerate the development of knowledge on FMT, to help to transform successful cases into clinical protocols, and to offer a therapeutic option to 30 million of dogs and cats suffering from chronic enteropathy in Europe.
La storia di Bruno è diventata un articolo scientifico pubblicato sulla rivista Animals a maggio 2021.
