Our 5 Year old Doberman had TPLO surger November 2nd 2010 on her left leg , 2 weeks later she developed a MRSP infection and in the meantime blew his ligment in the right leg too, He had surgery for the right leg and they removed the metal plate form the left leg at the same time , he has been on Marobflaxin for over 8 weeks. Looking to find people who have dealt with this kind of infections in there dogs.

Have one that developed a MRSI infection at the surgical site. Ortho gave a heavy duty injectable antibiotic (can't remember the name) and he was on a mega dose of Clindamycin for a while. It cleared up, then he had another breakout on his abdomen and groin and was put on a different antibiotic (sorry forget the name of that one too). By completion of final antibiotic it cleared up and he had no further break outs through his recovery period. All in we probably were dealing with the MRSI / antibiotics over a span of 3 months.

Back when I worked in hospitals for people was told back then the only thing tht might get rid of MRSA was Vancomicn (sp) not sure if i spelled it right. Then they also had VRE it was a bug resistant to Vancomicn where nothing would kill that bug.? Of course this is years ago.Hope they have inproved things by now good luck ith your fur kid.Rays & Hugs Patches Mom
It is my opinion that since they no longer do isolation procedures like they use too nor do they clean hospital rooms like they use too that is part of the reason we now have MRSA & VRE.

This is going to sound ridiculous, and may incur the rath of some... I have a human friend living in California. Last summer she caught mrsa. She started at the hospital for treatment but was advised by a friend to try something else... She used hash oil topically to kill mrsa. This is an illegal substance nearly everywhere except in California and she had a script.

This depends on the bug itself - many strains of methicillin resistant bacteria are readily eradicated by other antibiotics. Hopefully this will apply to your situation - good luck!
