Abstract:These experiments demonstrated that an appropriate bacteria rich sample can be isolated from canine and swine feces, but that more research is needed before this method can be used with ileal digesta samples. The standard N:DAPA ratios determined in these studies can be used in future research to evaluate effects of diet on overall bacterial concentrations in fecal samples.
