STORY AT-A-GLANCE

  • Parvovirus is a deadly infection that attacks the GI tract of puppies and dogs; historically, treatment for the virus has been purely supportive
  • A recently published study of FMT to treat parvo in puppies concluded the procedure significantly reduced mortality rates and recovery time
  • The study also showed that FMT is a safe procedure with no adverse effects
  • Despite its effectiveness, safety and low cost, FMT isn’t yet a widely used veterinary procedure to treat parvo or other GI-related conditions
  • FMT has been used by indigenous cultures around the world for centuries as a means of controlling potentially life-threatening gastrointestinal infections
