Fecal microbiota transplantation to treat canine atopic dermatitis?

Yes, you read that right!

In a pilot study, researchers evaluated the efficacy of a single oral FMT (fecal microbiota transplantation) on clinical signs and the gut microbiota of dogs with atopic dermatitis.

The authors concluded that the gut microbiota plays a pivotal role in the pathogenesis of cAD, and that oral FMT could be a new therapeutic approach targeting the gut microbiota in cAD.
