Subgingival bacteria--comparison of culture results in dogs and cats with gingivitis.

Author information

Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia 19104, USA.


Aerobic and anaerobic subgingival bacteria were cultured and identified from 49 dogs and 40 cats with spontaneous gingivitis. The most common organisms were gram-negative anaerobes (37% of canine isolates and 39% of feline isolates) and gram-positive aerobes (36% of canine isolates and 29% of feline isolates). No major differences were found between the subgingival floras of dogs and cats with gingivitis.
