Nitrofurantoin has been useful for treatment of resistant enterococcal UTIs in humans, and routine treatment
of MDR enterococcal UTIs that are not accompanied by clinical signs of lower urinary tract disease is not recommended. When enterococci are present with other bacteria, especially in the urinary tract, anecdotal evidence suggests that treatment of the non- enterococcal pathogen may be suf cient to resolve the infection.
Prevention
Appropriate shelter and kennel management and hygiene, as well as vaccination against other respiratory pathogens, may help to prevent streptococcal infections. Resistant enterococcal infections may be prevented through restricted and appropriate use of antimicrobial drugs and management of underlying disorders that predispose to bacterial infections.
