Antimicrobial resistance and virulence traits in Enterococcus strains isolated from dogs and cats


We investigated presence and prevalence of antibiotic-resistances and other biological characters in enterococci isolated from faeces of healthy and cats because these microorganisms represent important human and veterinary pathogens/opportunists, and a significant burden for healthcare systems. According to our study, pet animals can be considered a reservoir of potentially pathogenic enterococci and we cannot exclude that those microorganisms may be responsible for opportunistic infections in high-risk pet owners (Authors: R. Iseppi et al. Reference here).
