Wound management will be very similar to the handling of any other infected wound. Your vet will advise you on this (medication, collar, bandages etc) as each wound is different and needs individual assessment. However, should you encounter any problems in following your vet’s advice, for example if your pet refuses to take the tablets or resists having the wound inspected, tell your vet immediately. MRSA/MRSP infections can be difficult to treat but for most animal patients effective medication is still available, and treatment is most often successful provided it can be given correctly. Communication between you and your vet is very important in dealing with these infections and you should let your vets know if you are worried about the progress of wound healing (redness, discharge, odour) so that they can reassess changes. Sometimes, repeated swabs or a change in medication become necessary as the bacteria involved in wound infections can change during therapy
