The application of certain disinfection procedures is important for the prevention of nosocomial infection, and MRSA and MRSP infection control strategies should be adopted in veterinary medical practice. Expand
Methicillin‐resistant Staphylococcus aureus carriage among veterinary staff and dogs in private veterinary clinics in Hokkaido, Japan
TLDR
The prevalence of MRSA among Vets was as high as that found in an academic veterinary hospital in the authors' previous study, and measures against MRSA infection should be provided in private VCs. Expand
