In the current study, nasal, pharyngeal, and rectal swabs were taken from 175 healthy dogs and cultured for S. pseudintermedius. The organism was found in 153 dogs (87.4%), including individuals in which it exclusively colonized in the nares (n  =  1), pharynx (n  =  16), and rectum (n  =  17). Antimicrobial susceptibility testing revealed that a… CONTINUE READING
