coagulase positive staphylococcal colonization of humans and their household pets.staphylococcus aureus colonization was identified in 67/242 (28%) humans, 19/132 (14%) dogs, and 7/161 (4.3%) cats in households in ontario, with methicillin-resistant s. aureus present in 8 (3.3%) humans, 2 (1.5%) dogs, and 0 cats. staphylococcus pseudintermedius was isolated from 8 (4.1%) humans, 61 (46%) dogs, and 11 (6.8%) cats, with methicillin-resistant s. pseudintermedius detected in 1 (0.4%) human, 6 (4.5%) dogs, and 2 (1.2%) cats. staphylococcus schleiferi subspecies coagulans was isola ...200919949556
occurrence of antimicrobial resistant bacteria in healthy dogs and cats presented to private veterinary hospitals in southern ontario: a preliminary study.the prevalence and patterns of antimicrobial susceptibility of fecal escherichia coli, salmonella spp., extended beta-lactamase producing e. coli (esbl-e. coli), methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (mrsa), and methicillin-resistant staphylococcus pseudintermedius (mrsp) were determined for healthy dogs (n = 188) and cats (n = 39) from veterinary hospitals in southern ontario that had not had recent exposure to antimicrobials. the prevalence of antimicrobial resistance in e. coli was as f ...200920046603
escherichia coli and selected veterinary and zoonotic pathogens isolated from environmental sites in companion animal veterinary hospitals in southern ontario.hospital-based infection control in veterinary medicine is emerging and the role of the environment in hospital-acquired infections (hai) in veterinary hospitals is largely unknown. this study was initiated to determine the recovery of escherichia coli and selected veterinary and zoonotic pathogens from the environments of 101 community veterinary hospitals. the proportion of hospitals with positive environmental swabs were: e. coli--92%, clostridium difficile--58%, methicillin-resistant staphyl ...201021119862
direct repeat unit (dru) typing and antimicrobial resistance of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus pseudintermedius isolated from dogs in atlantic canada.there are few reports investigating the characterization of methicillin-resistant staphylococcus pseudintermedius (mrsp) in dogs in canada and none from atlantic canada. the objectives of this study were to strain type mrsp isolates cultured at a regional diagnostic laboratory using direct repeat unit (dru) typing and to describe their antimicrobial resistance profiles. ninety-four isolates recovered from dogs between 2010 and 2012 had dru typing, cluster analysis, and antimicrobial susceptibili ...201728725109
methicillin-resistant staphylococcal colonization in dogs entering a veterinary teaching hospital.nasal, axillary and rectal swabs were collected from 193 dogs admitted to the ontario veterinary college veterinary teaching hospital. enrichment culture was performed and coagulase positive staphylococci were identified via standard methods. methicillin-resistant staphylococcus pseudintermedius was isolated from 4/193 (2.1%) dogs, and methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus and methicillin-resistant staphylococcus schleiferi subsp. coagulans were each isolated from 1/193 (0.5%) dogs. methic ...200817643874
methicillin-resistant staphylococcal contamination of cellular phones of personnel in a veterinary teaching hospital.hospital-associated infections are an increasing cause of morbidity and mortality in veterinary patients. with the emergence of multi-drug resistant bacteria, these infections can be particularly difficult to eradicate. sources of hospital-associated infections can include the patients own flora, medical staff and inanimate hospital objects. cellular phones are becoming an invaluable feature of communication within hospitals, and since they are frequently handled by healthcare personnel, there m ...201222533923
methicillin-resistant staphylococcal contamination of clothing worn by personnel in a veterinary teaching hospital.to determine the methicillin-resistant staphylococcus aureus (mrsa) and methicillin-resistant staphylococcus pseudintermedius (mrsp) contamination rate of white coats (wc) and surgical scrubs (ss) worn by personnel at the ontario veterinary college health sciences centre (ovchsc) and to identify risk factors associated with clothing contamination.201323662728
