Animal and public health implications of gastric colonization of cats by Helicobacter-like organisms.
The bacterial genus Helicobacter contains a number of species which colonize the gastric mucosa of mammals.
Natural and/or experimental gastric pathology has been correlated with colonization in humans and a wide variety of animal species.
Historical reports in the literature suggest that a high percentage of cats are colonized by large, spiral, gastric helicobacter-like organisms (GHLOs).
One of these bacteria (Helicobacter felis) has been isolated on artificial media and has experimentally caused gastritis in gnotobiotic dogs.
This study surveyed the prevalence of helicobacter colonization in random-source cats by using the urease assay.
Histologic examination was performed to determine the degree of associated pathology present.
