Antimicrobial resistance has emerged as a consequence of the selective pressure exerted by antimicrobial usage in human medicine, veterinary medicine, and animal production. This limits the choice of treatments for animals’ infectious diseases and increases therapeutic failures and adverse clinical outcomes. The number of veterinary clinical cases due to multidrug-resistant microorganisms increases year by year, representing now an important Public Health problem. Efforts should be made to improve clinical management and treatment of these infections, to study their causes and consequences, and to improve measures to content them inside veterinary health care centers and animal production facilities.
In this Special Issue of the prestigious journal Animals, we aim to gather high-quality papers addressing different aspects of infectious diseases in animals caused by multidrug-resistant bacteria, with a special focus on a “One-Health” perspective. Manuscripts should cover topics related to clinical aspects, diagnosis, treatment, epidemiology, prevention and control of these infections in any type of animals (e.g., wildlife, pets, farm animals, laboratory animals, aquatic species). Novel therapies are also considered in this scope.
Researchers working in veterinary infectious clinical medicine, veterinary microbiology or preventive veterinary medicine are invited to contribute in-depth reviews, original research articles, and case-report series.
