Abstract

Background There is a growing concern regarding the increase of antimicrobial resistant bacteria in companion animals. Yet, there are no studies comparing the resistance levels of these organisms in European countries. The aim of this study was to investigate geographical and temporal trends of...

Abstract

Twenty-two methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strains isolated from various infected locations in domestic cats and dogs between June 2008 and September 2014 were analyzed for their genotype, genetic fingerprint, virulence and antibiotic resistance profile. Eighteen strains belonged ...

Abstract

Staphylococcus pseudintermedius is the most frequent causative agent of canine pyoderma. Although more rarely, S. pseudintermedius causes infections in cats and has also been identified in infections of humans. In contrast to the wealth of data available for methicillin-resistant S....

Abstract

The prevalence of multi-drug resistant S. pseudintermedius in Israel (IMDR), as assessed by a standardized disc-diffusion method, increased between 2004 and 2012 and decreased subsequently. Isolates were considered as IMDR if they were resistant to penicillin, oxacillin, ampicillin,...

Abstract

Forty methicillin-resistant and -susceptible Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP and MSSP, respectively) from colonization and infection in dogs and cats were characterized for clonality, antimicrobial, and biocide susceptibility. MSSP were genetically more diverse than MRSP by multi-locus...

Abstract

Methicillin resistance has emerged in clinical isolates of Staphylococcus pseudintermedius from cats in Switzerland. Three cats suffering from urinary tract infections were infected with methicillin-resistant S. pseudintermedius (MRSP). Phenotypic and genotypic characterization of the resistance...

Abstract

Objectives: The aim of this study was to determine the phenotypic and genotypic resistance profiles of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius (MRSP) and to examine the clonal distribution in Europe and North America. Methods: A total of 103 MRSP isolates from dogs isolated from...

Abstract

Nasal carriage of Staphylococcus aureus was evaluated in pigs at slaughterhouse. The nasal cavities of 304 pigs from 54 herds were screened. Eighty-nine percent of the farms harbored pigs that were colonized with S. aureus. Among them, no MRSA were found, indicating a low prevalence. However, pigs...

Abstract

Because of the frequency of multiple antibiotic resistance, Staphylococcus species often represent a challenge in incisional infections of horses undergoing colic surgery. To investigate the evolution of antibiotic resistance patterns before and after preventative peri- and postoperative penicillin ...
