Abstract

Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) are important causes of infection in companion animals and in humans. Studies evaluating the zoonotic impact of MRSA have revealed that MRSA can be transmitted from humans to companion animals (e.g. horses, dogs, cats, parrots) or vice versa. In...

Abstract

Background: Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) is an important Gram positive pathogen that has raised concerns due to its increasing prevalence despite pharmaceutical and technological advances. It does not only cause infections in humans but it can also be zoonotic in nature. The...
