Three groups of conventional puppies were inoculated orally with Campylobacter jejuni biotype 2 which had been isolated from the small intestine of a dog with enteritis. Mild enteric disease was observed in one group. There was superficial intestinal colonization by the organism but penetration of intestinal epithelial cells was not apparent. C jejuni was isolated from the blood and viscera of inoculated dogs which showed no histological evidence of disease.
