DO NOT PANIC! Basic hygiene reduces the risks of transmitting MRSA to a pet, so practise good hand hygiene and avoid face-to-face contact with a pet as much as is practical, we know this is very difficult to do.

Key points to remember

Keep your pets healthy, with diet and exercise and avoid long unnecessary stays in hospitals as this increases the risk factors for MRSA and other post operative infections. Avoid the overuse of antibiotics in your pet’s lifespan.

IF YOUR PET IS GOING INTO HOSPITAL TALK TO YOUR VET ABOUT THEIR INFECTION CONTROL POLICY (If they are a good vet they will be happy to have this discussion)
