Identifying Healthy Bacteria on Canine Skin

This study identifies the healthy bacteria living on the skin of dogs. The information gathered will be used to better understand how the household environment and the skin microenvironment influence the composition of skin bacteria. The study will provide a foundation for future studies on how healthy bacteria protect dogs against common diseases such as atopic dermatitis.
