THE discovery of an association between Helicobacter pylori and gastritis, peptic ulcers and gastric neoplasia has led to fundamental changes in the understanding of gastric disease in humans. Investigation of the relationship between gastric disease and Helicobacter species in other animals has resulted in the discovery of H mustelae in ferrets with gastritis and peptic ulcers, H acinonyx in cheetahs with severe gastritis and H heilmannii in pigs with gastric ulcers. The presence of gastric Helicobacter-like organisms in the stomachs of dogs and cats has been recognised for many years but the relationship between those organisms and gastric disease is unresolved. This article summarises the current knowledge of gastric Helicobacter infection in dogs and cats.
