Comments "Table 4 summarizes total and individual VFA concentrations obtained simultaneously from various blood vessels and in the hindgut of rabbits, pigs, and humans compared with concentrations obtained from the blood and rumen of sheep...As discussed and as indicated in Table 4, some species differences in VFA metabolism do exist. More importantly, however, the metabolism of VFA differs with each individual compound."
