General Stomach Upsets

Bacterial/viral Infections and Parasites

  • Bacteria/viruses and parasites are a great source of gastrointestinal disturbance when they adhere to cells of the intestinal tract
  • They utilise adhesins to stick to ensure they stick to the GI cells
  • They exert their effect through virulence factors
  • Virulence factors are molecules through which they achieve their colonization

Ingestion Of “Gone-Off” Food

  • Too often our pets are given or allowed to eat decaying food matter that no human would even dream of touching
  • Decaying food matter is due to microorganisms feeding off the food e.g. bread mould
  • Ingestion of these organisms provides them with opportunity to colonise the gut

MOS - Binds

  • MOS binds to type-1 mannose site in the bacterium, preventing the latter from binding to glycoproteins of intestinal cells
  • “The action of MOS is to bind to type-1 mannose site in the bacterium, preventing the latter from binding to glycoproteins of intestinal cells.” (E.M.M.F. Gouveia, 2013).
