Abstract

Acinetobacter species can exhibit widespread resistance to antimicrobial agents. They are already recognized as important nosocomial pathogens of humans, but are becoming increasingly recognized in opportunistic infections of animals. This study aimed to determine whether Acinetobacter spp. are carried on skin of healthy dogs and, if present, to identify the species.
