Product Overview How To Use What's Inside

AnimalBiome Veterinary offers high-quality fecal material sourced from extensively screened healthy cat donors for use in fecal transplant procedures via enema. Research has shown FMT treatment via enema improved patient outcomes dealing with severe and or chronic disease states (see FMT treatment in small animal practice). This is not a probiotic and contains native strains of microbes derived from screened felines, allowing veterinarians to safely perform fecal microbiota transplantations safely and effectively.

FMT via Enema For Domestic Cats

Procedure based on methods described in Pereira et al.,2018

Follow standard practices prior to surgical procedures.


Materials Needed

  • 60ml catheter-tip syringe
  • Saline solution (0.9% NaCl)
  • Enema packet(s)
  • Red rubber catheter (for warm water enema)
  • Foley catheter or clean rubber red catheter (for FMT procedure)
  • Gloves
  • ABV Enema Jar
  • Non-spermicidal lube

Step 1: Prepare Patient

Materials

  • 60ml catheter-tip syringe
  • Red rubber catheter
  • Saline solution (0.9% NaCl)
  • Gloves

Steps

Note: sedation is recommended, but not required.

  1. Place the patient into right lateral recumbency with their pelvis slightly elevated.
  2. Administration of warm water enema (recommended).
    1. Draw the appropriate amount of warm water into a 60ml catheter-tip syringe.
    2. Attach the syringe to a lubricated red rubber catheter and aspirate catheter to avoid introducing air into the colon.
    3. Insert the catheter up to the estimated region of the transverse colon.
    4. Administer the warm water enema.
    5. Remove the catheter and allow the evacuation of the colon.

Step 2: Prepare FMT Slurry

Materials

  • 60ml catheter-tip syringe
  • Red rubber catheter
  • ABV Enema packet(s)
  • Saline solution (0.9% NaCl)
  • ABV enema jar
  • Gloves

Steps

  1. Using a lidded wide-mouth jar, mix the number of pouches of fecal powder based on patient weight with the calculated volume of 0.9% NaCl (see full dosage chart below). Pour the saline slowly into the fecal powder to minimize powder aerosolization.
  2. Secure lid. Mix thoroughly by shaking (1 minute) until a smooth-consistency slurry results.
  3. Transfer the fecal slurry into a catheter-tipped syringe(s) for administration to the patient.
  4. The fecal slurry should be administered within 2 hours of reconstitution.

Step 3: Administer FMT Materials

Materials

  • FMT Slurry (see step 2)
  • Foley catheter (or rubber red catheter)
  • 60ml catheter-tip syringe with FMT slurry contents
  • Gloves

Steps

Note: Spermicidal lubrication should be avoided for this step.

  1. Insert the 60ml syringe into the Foley catheter and flush the catheter to avoid introducing air into the colon.
  2. Insert the lubricated Foley catheter rectally, up to the distal region of the transverse colon and proximal to the descending colon. Then inflate the catheter to reduce seepage.
  3. Administer the desired volume of fecal slurry slowly.
  4. Enema Retention
    1. 15 min in right lateral recumbency
    2. 15 min in sternal position
    3. 15 min in left lateral recumbency

Dosing Chart For Cats

Ratio of powder to body weight (lb): 1 g fecal powder per 1 lb body weight

Ideal Cat Weight (lb)* # Packets Add 0.9% NaCl (mL)
0 – 10 1 40
10 - 20 2 80
20+ 3 120

*Patients should be dosed based on ideal weight when in a body condition score of 5/9

Each jar comes with up to five 10g individually-packed Mylar pouches with prescreened feline fecal microbial transplant sourced from select healthy cat donors who live in homes, rigorously tested for pathogens, parasites, and healthy microbiome composition.

This is a natural product. Some variation in color is normal.


Actual number of Mylar pouches per jar varies depending on your order quantity.
