Equine Veterinary Journal (2019)

doi: 10.1111/evj.13133

• What did the research find?

The most frequently isolated bacteria were Streptococcus species, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas species, Staphylococcus aureus and Klebsiella species. Tetracycline resistance was found to be prevalent for all the bacteria isolated in this study. S aureus and Pseudomonas were found to have the highest proportions of resistance to gentamicin, while Klebsiella and E coli had the highest proportions of resistance to trimethoprim-sulfamethoxazole. Resistance to third generation cephalosporins was below 10 per cent for all Enterobacteriaceae. S aureus isolates were found to have the highest proportions of multidrug resistance.

• How was it conducted?

Data collected between 2012 and 2016 by RESAPATH, the French national surveillance network for antimicrobial resistance (AMR), were studied. A total of 12,695 antibiograms were analysed, and the most frequently isolated bacteria were identified. For each combination of bacteria and antimicrobial, the …
