MRSP, MRSA and Pyoderma

Anette Loeffler describes how to approach the challenges involved in multiple drug resistance in canine pyodermas.

We have not yet looked at solutions to the challenges involved in multiple drug resistance in companion animal practice. Step 1.13 introduced the barriers to achieving AMS in canine pyoderma with MRSA and MRSP. In this video, Anette Loeffler explores how AMS can be implemented in cases of canines with complicated pyodermas and MRSA or MRSP infections.

Establishing an accurate diagnosis using appropriate testing is vital. When MRSA and MRSP are involved, infection control and hand hygiene are also really important to prevent transmission and spread of infection.

Watch the video to gain a better understanding of how to deal with canine pyodermas and multiple drug resistance. It is a scenario that is becoming increasing prevalent due to the rise of antimicrobial resistance. In the comments section, discuss how you can use the ideas in the video in your own practice.
