Antibiotikaresistente Bakterien bei Hund und Katze: Empfehlungen für Halterinnen und Halter


Heim, D; Kuster, S P; Willi, Barbara (2020). Antibiotikaresistente Bakterien bei Hund und Katze: Empfehlungen für Halterinnen und Halter. Schweizer Archiv für Tierheilkunde, 162(3):141-151.

Abstract

Antibiotic-resistant bacteria are of increasing importance in human and veterinary medicine. Also, small animal clinics and practices are facing patients carrying antibiotic-resistant bacteria. What risk do these animals pose for animal owners? How can the risk of transmission to humans be reduced? A working group of human and veterinary medicine experts developed a guide for dog or cat owners with pets carrying antibiotic-resistant bacteria. The guide contains background information on the most important antibiotic-resistant bacteria in dogs and cats, namely methicillin-resistant staphylococci and extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL)- and carbapenemase-producing Enterobacteriaceae. Measures are listed to reduce the risk of transmission to humans. This review explains the pathophysiology, occurrence and risk factors of these bacteria in dogs, cats and humans. Recommended measures are outlined.
