Bacterial pyoderma was predictably responsive to empirical systemic antibiotics in most dogs for many years, although often recurrent unless the underlying primary disease was well managed. Now in many areas of the world including Australia, managing canine pyoderma is much more complex due to methicillin-resistance in causal staphylococcal pseudintermedius (MRSP), which is usually also associated with multi-drug resistance. This session will focus on how to accurately recognise pyoderma, how to know if poorly responsive pyoderma is due to MRSP, and treatment options for MRSP pyoderma.
