Abstract

Staphylococcus (S.) aureus colonizes the skin and mucosa of various mammalian hosts, and up to 30% of the human population is permanently colonized. As a zoonotic pathogen, S. aureus plays an important role in both human and veterinary medicine, affecting a broad range of animals. When the general...

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...
