Abstract

The present report describes the successful use of a multimodal approach for the treatment of a chronic axillary non-healing gunshot wound infected with a meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) strain in a cat. Isolation from the contamination source, confinement, antibiotics and...

Abstract

This study sought the presence of these mutations in the whole genome sequence data of 458 MRSA isolates cultured from humans (n=397) or animals (n=61). Isolates from humans were predominantly drawn from the east of England between 1985 and 1987 (n=180) or between 2006 and 2013 (n=191), with the...

Abstract

Background: Meticillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) infections remain important medical and veterinary challenges. The MRSA isolated from dogs and cats typically belong to dominant hospital-associated clones, in the UK mostly EMRSA-15 (CC22 SCCmecIV), suggesting original human-to-animal...

Abstract

We investigated the prevalence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) carriage in a convenience sample of purposely selected populations of dogs, cats and horses in the Greater London area. Swabs from carriage sites were pooled, enriched and processed by standard bacteriological...

Abstract

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is a global human health problem causing infections in both hospitals and the community. Companion animals, such as cats, dogs, and horses, are also frequently colonized by MRSA and can become infected. We sequenced the genomes of 46 multilocus...

Abstract

This article reviews the literature on the epidemiology of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) in dogs, cats and horses. Over the past 10 years, MRSA has emerged as an important pathogen in veterinary medicine, especially in countries with a high MRSA burden in human hospitals....

Abstract

Over the last years, more and more infections with methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) have been detected in human and veterinary medicine. Since 2005, the clonal complex 398 (CC398) is described in livestock and also in humans with exposure to colonized animals. The emergence of...
