AbstractFull Text

Background: Urinary tract infection (UTI) is a common reason for antimicrobial prescription in dogs and cats. The objective of this study was to optimize and evaluate a culture-based point-of-care test for detection, identification and antimicrobial susceptibility testing of bacterial uro-pathogens ...

Abstract

Background: Multiple drug resistance (MDR) in staphylococci, including resistance to the semi-synthetic penicillinase-resistant penicillins such as meticillin, is a problem of global proportions that presents serious challenges to the successful treatment of staphylococcal infections of companion...

Abstract

This article discusses the emergence and prevalence of methicillin-resistantStaphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP) among hospitalized cats and dogs in Portugal between April 2008 and May 2010. It is suggested that the prevalence of MRSA is lower than MRSP, but MRSP...

Abstract

A putative staphylococcal protein A (spa) gene was discovered in the genome of Staphylococcus pseudintermedius and used for developing a species-specific spa typing protocol. Thirty-one clinical methicillin-resistant S. pseudintermedius (MRSP) isolates from dogs and cats in four countries were...

Abstract

Minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of nitrofurantoin were determined by agar dilution in 269 canine and feline isolates of Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus pseudintermedius, two of the most common bacterial species associated with urinary tract infection (UTI) in small animals. The MIC90...

Abstract

An overview of antimicrobial use in animals is given in this article. A history of antimicrobial use in animals is also provided together with data on the current consumption of veterinary antimicrobials in Europe. Moreover, the current zoonotic risks associated with antimicrobial resistance are...
