What is it about?
The location of leakage in the gastrointestinal tract and associated bacterial species were theoretically believed to affect the prognosis in septic peritonitis. However, this retrospective study showed no association between the origin of contamination or bacterial species and the outcome.

Why is it important?
Despite the general belief of association between bacterial species and outcome, no research had been done to investigate the association between the origin of contamination and the outcome and between bacterial species and outcome in dogs with septic peritonitis prior to the present study. Our findings are important for prognostic information as well as direction for future studies.
