Abstract

Staphylococcus pseudintermedius is a member of the coagulase-positive staphylococci and is the commonest cause of canine pyoderma. We report the first genome sequence of S. pseudintermedius, which shows the presence of numerous virulence factors akin to those of the related human pathogen Staphylococcus aureus.
