Is it possible to remove the MRSA that colonises my dog? I know that humans can become decolonized.
Potentially, yes. There have been some successes with treating the nasal passages of pets to remove MRSA colonies, but almost no reliable research. The ease with which MRSA colonization can be treated may well depend on issues such as the specific size of a dog’s head and the difficulty getting medicine into the colonized area.What is MRSA and how does it affect animals?
