I didn't know dogs could get MRSA. At the hospital I nurse at, patients with MRSA are isolated with gowns & gloves worn when coming into contact with them ....not masks, as it is not airborne. In humans it is highly contagious, but one has to have a break in the skin which then comes into contact with the affected area. It is treatable, but can take a while to clear up. Once patient has tested clear of it, & has been discharged, the room is cleaned out more thoroughly than with a usual discharge. I have no idea if a human could catch it from an animal ....I was not even aware that animals could get MRSA. Hope your Bella does really well with her treatment.

I, too, wasn't aware dogs could get MRSA. I know it can be treated in humans and it sounds like they've already started to treat Bella?
Praying for her!

I never though about our pets getting MRSA.. My daughter got it after a c-section. She was very sick but was told to wash her hands often and before taking care of her baby. Neither her hubby or her baby got it. She did recover and is now MRSA free. Praying for you and all your critters.

Thank you so much. The vet said the tests came back MRSA. I don't think I would be as upset if I hadn't found spots on Finn last night. Although they are different than Bellas, they are very suspect looking.

Any information you can send me though would be appreciated, and when I am art the vet today I will double check the MRSA vs MSRP.

I looked it up on the net & yes, dogs can get MRSA ...I learn something new every day. So it would certainly be good to get the vet to check out your other dog, as I presume it is as highly contagious in canines as it is in humans. Fortunately it can be treated, so wishing all the very best for you all.

Sorry - deleted my post. My dog just had an MRSP ( methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus pseudintermedius) - not MRSA.

I'm sorry - I hope your dog is okay. If you're not sure or are worried about your other dogs, you can probably get them swabbed and tested. Ask your vet all your questions - they know how scary it can be. I really hope your dog gets well soon. If she responds well to the antibiotics, I'm sure she'll be better soon!
