The authors are grateful to Gustavo Drumond Pawlowski for his excellent technical assistance. The other three owners were not re-tested, because in one household the index dog was euthanatized and in the other household the two owners were tested MRSP-positive only in the last sampling.

However, Devriese et al. Microb Drug Resist 7— The MRSP-positive humans were found in combination with MRSP-positive index dogs showing clinical signs, contact animals and environmental samples indicating considerable exposure. No ST71 strains were present in five households that instead harboured strains with ST29, andrespectively. However, it is also possible that the veterinarians were re-infected as they have frequent contact with infected pets.

It is often unclear if dogs or humans are actually colonized persistently or transiently or merely contaminated with MRSP.
In six households, however, MRSP was found at the site where no physical contact was possible with the index case or contact animal. In addition, physical contact of the owners with these sites was scarce, because of poor accessibility.
However, in one household the index dog became MRSP-negative while the contact dog was repeatedly tested MRSP-positive with the same genotype that was originally isolated from the index case. These results show that veterinarians should stay alert with former MRSP patients, even after repeated MRSP-negative cultures or after the disappearance of the clinical infection.
