Joanne---how long does that last for one dog? Is it a powder or?? My thinking is IF they have it I will do the antibiotics along w/this & then do this again.
The 200 grams expired before I cld use it all. I was giving it to all 3 at that time and if I remember correctly, I had the jar for 2 years. It’s powder form and I think it was less than 1/8 of a teaspoon when using to supplement with food. It was more for Giardia protocol.Joanne---how long does that last for one dog? Is it a powder or??

I remember all that and I do know it can be passed from pet to human, same as Giardia because one of my clients who fosters dogs got it from a group of puppies she had.Yes!
I am not sure how long we have had it--Dwt. brought it home from Turkey year before last & we cleaned & cleaned & cleaned & we thought it was gone. Last summer I started to have digestive issues, saw my PC who sent me to a GI specialist---he put me on a FODMAP diet for 8 wks (did not help) just kept losing weight. He has me scheduled for scope Feb. 26th in hospital. I sent him a msg. tonight asking if this could be my issue & then read that dogs & people can pass it back & forth. K & L both had it before when D had it but I did not (D & K & L were all tested positive).
I’m sure your exhausted. Go nap if you can 🙏🏻I have written to my GI specialist---will see what he says. I know nothing about what you are talking about! He is also a professor so I hope he knows more than most.
This whole thing just makes me want to go take a nap!
Yes..,screening is most important. They actually have fecal donor clinics in Cambridge. Out of curiously I wanted to see the requirements needed to volunteer your sooks and surprisingly it wasn’t so easy. I also wonder how oof that article was because from what my clients in the medical field are saying...they are definitely using the pills a lot more.It is almost 8:30 PM so no nap.
I did a little reading from Mayo Clinic on F transplants--here was one negative:
The procedure is considered to be generally safe. The Food and Drug Administration, however, recently released a report about two patients who underwent fecal transplantation and contracted drug-resistant infections. It’s unclear if these cases were related to fecal transplants for C. diff. or if the fecal transplants were done for another condition. More needs to be learned about those incidents, but they speak to the importance of carefully and methodically screening donors.
You are right---it sounds a bit gross.
