The picture on the right is a dog helicobacter (H.Helmanii) from a patient of Dr. Marshall’s who kept two red setters in his house all his life.
The animal helicobacters can be detected on biopsy, or with urease tests or breath tests. Next time your cat has “fur balls” , think again. It could be Helicobacters! You might try giving the cat some Pepto-Bismol, 2 mls in a syringe three times per day for two days.
