Benefits of Lactobacillus acidophilus D2CSL (CECT 4529) as a feed additive for cats and dogs

The intestinal microbiota of animals constitutes a complex ecosystem, which strongly influences normal intestinal function and preserves the animal’s wellbeing. Moreover, in synergy with the gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT), the intestinal microbiota hampers the invasion of exogenous microorganisms. This process is known as “competitive exclusion”. Microbial communities change over time due to physiological and environmental causes (e.g., aging, change in diet, stress, infections, antibiotic treatments).

The long-term studies presented herein bring evidence for a role of the probiotic Lactobacillus acidophilus D2/CSL (CECT 4529) as a positive modulator of the intestinal microbiota in dogs and cats, at the endorsed dosage.
