Abstract

The objective of this study was to assess post-gastric processing of octanoic acid (OA) by comparing the rate of recovery of C-13 in breath with the rate of recovery of H-2 in saliva following ingestion of [H-2/C-13]OA. A test meal with 100 mg [C-13]OA and 750 mg [H-2]OA was ingested on two separate occasions by one dog. Exhaled breath and saliva samples were collected at set time points for 6 h following ingestion of the test meal. Two indices were computed, half recovery time (t(1/2)) and the time of peak excretion (t(max)). Recovery of (2) H in saliva was quicker than recovery of C-13 in breath as determined by the difference in the indices for each isotope; 1.33 and 1.59 h for t(1/2) and t(max), respectively. These findings suggest that the post-gastric processing of OA imposes a delay on the recovery of C-13 in breath in the dog, as occurs in man and in the horse.
