Research Update CHF 02723 EY1: Scientific and Clinical Assessment of Fecal Microbiota Transplant in Obese Dogs: SLIM Study

To date, we have screened 31 dogs for the SLIM study. Of these, 23 have met the inclusion criteria and were enrolled. Of these enrolled dogs, six dogs have completed at least 12 weeks of the 24-week clinical trial. We are averaging 1-2 dogs screening for the study per week. Therefore, we are currently on track to have all dogs enrolled by Fall 2021.
