Bacterial Pyoderma in dogs and cats, including challenges of MRSP


Bacterial pyoderma complicates many primary skin problems, and is common in a variety of presentations in dogs, and increasingly recognised in cats. This webinar will focus on how to accurately diagnose superficial and deep pyoderma, and how to know if poorly responsive pyoderma is due to methicillin-resistance in causal staphylococcal pseudintermedius (MRSP) or to a range of other factors that may impact response to treatment. Optimal treatment approaches for both MRSP and methicillin-sensitive (MSSP) pyoderma will also be discussed.

 

Learning objectives –

  1. To be familiar with the range of clinical lesions that may be produced by bacterial pyoderma in dogs and cats
  2. To have a sound knowledge of how to diagnose superficial and deep bacterial pyoderma, including forms associated with MRSP
  3. To have a broad knowledge of the underlying primary diseases most commonly associated with pyoderma in both dogs and cats
  4. To have an understanding of what a diagnosis of MRSP pyoderma means for your patient, veterinary staff, and pet owners
  5. To have a sound knowledge of optimal treatment recommendations for superficial and deep pyoderma, including forms associated with MRSP
