Canine Oral and Fecal Lactic Acid Bacteria Strains were isolated from 40 healthy dog oral and fecal samples. Lactic Acid Bacteria were found in 70% of canine fecal samples and 40% of canine oral samples. Then these samples were cultured on Lactobacillus Selective Media with acetic acid. Out of these 6 samples were identified with partial 16s rRNA gene sequencing and various Biochemical Tests for their pro-biotic characteristic. Lactobacillus fermentum, Lactobacillus plantarum, Lactobacillus casei, Lactobacillus mucosae, Lactobacillus delbrueckii and Lactobacillus salivarius were selected as candidate pro-biotic strains based on the frequency and quantity in feces, growth density, acid tolerance, and antimicrobial activity. Sequence similarity values of 93 % with Lactobacillus casei, 89% with Lactobacillus pentosus, and 85% with Lactobacillus delbruecki. These were the most frequently encountered bacteria in canine oral cavity and feces.
