Bacteria of the genus Staphylococcus are considered common etiological agents of infectious processes. Staphylococcus aureus is one of the major pathogens that cause human and animal infections due to its high prevalence in hospital and community infections since it belongs to the normal microbiota of the skin and nasal fossae of humans and healthy animals. In addition, the incidence of multidrug-resistant strains (MDR) of the S aureus species are related to high morbimortality rates in domestic animals worldwide. The identification of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) and vancomycin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (VRSA) in domestic animals is relevant not only from the epidemiological point of view, but also to enables the development of strategies to control and prevent infections caused by these microorganisms in veterinary practice, in order to reduce their effects on human public health. In this context, the present study aimed to elucidate the link between MDR strains of S aureus and infections in domestic animals.
