If an animal is colonised with MRSP/MRSA or MRSI, there is little data available to suggest that decolonisation is worthwhile. These bacteria have evolved to inhabit our pets as their normal environment; therefore they are likely to be difficult to remove, and to come back if we can remove them. If they are not causing a problem, there is no reason to fight them – we’d be fighting nature! Again, simple basic hygiene may be the way forward, as discussed for MRSA elsewhere on this site.

The outward signs of an antibiotic-resistant infection are the same as those for most other infections: inflammation, raised temperature around the area, and sometimes the production of pus.

Did you know...

A small proportion of the human population carry MRSA without knowing it and without any ill-effects.
