An Urban Experience
usually there is an underlying predisposing disorder, such as laryngeal paralysis or chronic bronchitis (pneumonia), allergic skin disease (pyoderma), a foreign body, recessed vulva, or diabetes mellitus. Identification and management of the underlying problem to the
best extent possible is critical to minimize recurrence of infection following antimicrobial drug therapy. In some cases, the underlying disorder cannot be effectively treated, and the clinician needs to decide to what extent treatment of secondary bacterial infections is necessary.
7. Are there non-antimicrobial alternatives to treating the problem?
Increasingly non-antimicrobial alternatives for treatment of resistant bacterial infections. These include frequent bathing for canine superficial pyoderma, and live biotherapeutic products for urinary tract infections. Topical antimicrobial drugs overwhelm bacterial resistance mechanisms and may be useful for focal pyoderma or bacterial otitis externa.
