Abstract
This study aimed to identify and characterize extended-spectrum β-lactamase (ESBL) producing Enterobacteriaceae among clinical samples of companion animals.A total of 346 non-duplicate Enterobacteriaceae isolates were collected between 2012 and 2016 from diseased cats (n = 115) and dogs (n = 231). The presence of blaESBL, PMQR genes, and the azithromycin resistance gene mph(A) was confirmed by PCR and sequencing of bla genes. Isolates were...
