Emergence of OXA-48 carbapenemase-producing Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumoniae in dogs.
TLDR
This is the first known report of OXA-48-producing bacteria from companion animals and suggests a nosocomial dissemination rather than repeated introduction by individual patients into the clinic.
Multiresistant extended-spectrum β-lactamase-producing Enterobacteriaceae from humans, companion animals and horses in central Hesse, Germany
TLDR
The results indicate active transmission and dissemination of multi-resistant Enterobacteriaceae among human and animal populations.
Clonal spread of highly successful ST15-CTX-M-15 Klebsiella pneumoniae in companion animals and horses.
TLDR
The authors' data indicate a wide spread of ST15-CTX-M-15 K. pneumoniae subsp.
Molecular identification and further characterization of Arcanobacterium pyogenes isolated from bovine mastitis and from various other origins.
TLDR
It is revealed that 100, 20, 87, 75, and 98% of the A. pyogenes carried the genes plo, cbpA, nanH, nanP, and fimA, which allowed an individual strain characterization, which might help to elucidate the role the putative virulence factors play in bovine mastitis and in various other infections caused by this bacterial pathogen.
Multidrug-Resistant Acinetobacter baumannii in Veterinary Clinics, Germany
TLDR
Results indicate spread of genotypically related strains within and among veterinary clinics in Germany and indicate increase in prevalence of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter spp.
Dissemination of the gene encoding exfoliative toxin of Staphylococcus intermedius among strains isolated from dogs during routine microbiological diagnostics.
TLDR
Phenotypic properties and species-specific PCR tests based on the nuc gene of Staphylococcus intermedius and S. aureus, and a conserved region of 16S rDNA were used and revealed an almost complete identity of the S. intermedius nuc PCR strain.
Influenza A (H10N7) Virus Causes Respiratory Tract Disease in Harbor Seals and Ferrets
TLDR
Seal/H10N7 infection in naturally infected harbor seals and experimentally infected ferrets shows that respiratory epithelial cells are the permissive cells for viral replication.
Multispecies and Clonal Dissemination of OXA-48 Carbapenemase in Enterobacteriaceae From Companion Animals in Germany, 2009—2016
TLDR
A systematic monitoring is urgently needed to assess the dissemination of CPE not only in livestock but also in companion animals and veterinary clinics and horizontal transfer of the pOXA-48-like plasmid between bacterial species and animals.
