The role of the gut microbiota in the pathology of cutaneous and renal glomerular vasculopathy (CRGV) – a shotgun metagenomic sequencing approach
Hypothesis and Purpose of Project
Does the gut microbiota play a role in the disease process of CRGV? Establishing differences in the bacterial species in the gut microbiota of dogs suffering from CRGV compared to dogs suffering from Acute Kidney Injury, and Medically healthy dogs would improve our chances of identifying bacterial species that may be responsible for CRGV, either as a direct cause or as a contributing factor.
