The authors received funding for this work from a commercial source (Vétoquinol Laboratories) and with regards to their agreement with this company, this does not alter the authors’ adherence to all the PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials. Moreover, the authors contracted the realization of the experiments in a Contract Research Organization, named CiToxLAB North America, and one author, Simon Authier at the time a Ph.D. student under supervision and actually Head of Veterinary Services at this company, participated actively in the study’s realization as well as edition of the manuscript. For this reason, this does not alter the authors’ adherence to all the PLOS ONE policies on sharing data and materials.
