MRSA is an opportunistic infection that can kill vulnerable animals. It is most dangerous when infecting a surgical wound, and we are currently seeing even healthy animals losing limbs as a result of this infection.

The greatest risk of infection or colonisation tends to occur in veterinary practices, and research at the Royal Veterinary College, London has found that 20% or more of veterinary staff can carry the bug.

Good clinical practice can prevent infection and colonisation, and effective screening can reduce the risk further. These depend upon veterinary staff being well trained and skilled, and on pet owners understanding how to work with their vet in an effective and knowledgeable way.
