Cricket protein and the dog gut microbiome with Jiminy’s
This study was conducted with Jiminy’s to investigate the effects of edible cricket on the gut microbiome of healthy dogs. Crickets contain protein and prebiotic fiber and their inclusion in the diet supports a healthy level of bacterial diversity.

Sample non-profit studies
Preventing diarrhea in a service dog breeding program with FMT
Diarrhea can be a serious problem for puppies in service dog breeding programs, and may prevent them from completing training. In the study, we aim to prevent or reduce this by treating the mothers with FMT prior to pregnancy, so that they can pass on a healthier microbiome to their puppies. We also tested the efficacy of GMP for treating diarrhea in puppies. This study is a partnership with Leader Dogs for the Blind.
Changes in the gut microbiome of Golden Retrievers with cancer
In partnership with the Morris Animal Foundation and Hills Pet Nutrition, we are using samples from the Golden Retriever Lifetime Study to compare the gut microbiomes of Golden Retrievers that passed away from cancer (lymphoma or hemangiosarcoma) to those that are healthy. We hope to understand changes that may occur in the microbiome around the time that cancer develops, and as it progresses.
