Abstract

The aim of the present study was to investigate the diversity of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) that originated from Austrian companion animals during the last five-year period. A total of 90 non-repetitive MRSA isolates were obtained during diagnostic activities from autumn...

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...
