    Blood was also collected via jugular venipuncture on d 0 and 8 into a serum separator tube and a 7.5% Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) tube (Coviden, Mansfield, MA) for chemistry panel analysis, complete blood count analysis, and erythrocyte sedimentation rate assessment. On d 0 and 9, 100 mL of cecal fluid was collected, pH was recorded and then the sample was immediately frozen for bacterial analysis. On d 9, 100 mL of cecal fluid was collected at 0, 3, 6, 9, 12, 15, 18, and 21 h, and filtered
