The most frequent bacterial isolates from urine specimen of cats with urinary tract infections in Italy were : Staphylococcus aureus subsp. aureus (17.57 %), Escherichia coli (5.41 %), Proteus mirabilis (4.05 %), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (2.70 %) and alpha-haemolytic streptococci (1.35 %). In vitro antibacterial agent sensitivity showed that S. aureus subsp. aureus isolates were highly susceptible to doxicyclin; E. coli isolates to amikacin, amoxicillin, cefotaxin, netilmycin and rifampicin; Proteus mirabilis to amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, cefotaxin and netilmycin; Pseudomonas aeruginosa to gentamycin; alpha-haemolytic streptococci to cefalexin and rifampicin.

Abstract

The most frequent bacterial isolates from urine specimen of cats with urinary tract infections in Italy were : Staphylococcus aureus subsp. aureus (17.57 %), Escherichia coli (5.41 %), Proteus mirabilis (4.05 %), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (2.70 %) and alpha-haemolytic streptococci (1.35 %). In vitro antibacterial agent sensitivity showed that S. aureus subsp. aureus isolates were highly susceptible to doxicyclin; E. coli isolates to amikacin, amoxicillin, cefotaxin, netilmycin and rifampicin; Proteus mirabilis to amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, cefotaxin and netilmycin; Pseudomonas aeruginosa to gentamycin; alpha-haemolytic streptococci to cefalexin and rifampicin.
