Molecular Characterization of Cephalosporin-Resistant Salmonella enterica Serotype Newport Isolates from Animals in Pennsylvania
TLDR
The potential for coselection of the blaCMY gene, if located on an MDR replicon, may not be dependent on any particular antibiotic but rather may be the result of more general antimicrobial use. Expand
Survival of Salmonella enterica Serovar Newport in Manure and Manure-Amended Soils
TLDR
To determine the survival characteristics of Salmonella serovar Newport in manure and manure-amended soils where the pathogen may be amplified, a multidrug-resistant and a drug-susceptible strain were inoculated into dairy manure. Expand
Outbreak of salmonellosis caused by Salmonella enterica serovar Newport MDR-AmpC in a large animal veterinary teaching hospital.
TLDR
A paradigm shift in the relevance of biosecurity in a VTH and the establishment of a stringent ICP were integral components of successful hospital reopening in a nosocomial outbreak caused by a MDR S. Newport in aVTH. Expand
Antimicrobial use in horses undergoing colic surgery.
TLDR
Despite published recommendations regarding antimicrobial prophylaxis, compliance is poor; improvement might reduce postoperative complications. Expand
Post operative infection, pyrexia and perioperative antimicrobial drug use in surgical colic patients.
TLDR
Slight to mild pyrexia in the early post operative period is not necessarily associated with impending bacterial infection in colic patients and the use of antimicrobials in these patients may be costly and unnecessary. Expand
Retrospective multicentre study of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus infections in 115 horses.
TLDR
Equine MRSA infections have a broad range of clinical presentations, appear to be primarily opportunistic and the overall prognosis for survival to discharge is good, and factors significantly associated with nonsurvival included i.v. catheterisation, CA-MRSA infection and dissemination of infection to other body sites. Expand
Short communication: Survey of animal-borne pathogens in the farm environment of 13 dairy operations.
TLDR
The extent of pathogen prevalence and distribution on the farms indicates considerable public health risks associated with not only milk and meat consumption and direct animal contact, but also potential dissemination of the pathogens into the agroecosystem. Expand
Comparison of short- and long-term complications and survival following jejunojejunostomy, jejunoileostomy and jejunocaecostomy in 112 horses: 2005-2010.
TLDR
The results suggest that, when possible, a JI may be the preferred method of anastomosis based on more favourable survival and lower occurrence of colic long term. Expand
Identification of predictors of Salmonella shedding in adult horses presented for acute colic.
TLDR
In horses with acute colic that present without signs of diarrhea, fever, or leukopenia, additional predictors associated with shedding Salmonella could be used to more promptly identify horses likely to shed organisms. Expand
Chlorine Dioxide Gas Decontamination of Large Animal Hospital Intensive and Neonatal Care Units
TLDR
The success of this project demonstrates the utility of ClO2 gas as a biological decontaminant approach for mid-sized commercial and public facilities. Expand
