The intramammary colonisation by Staphylococcus aureus provokes mastitis in the cow. Once established, the infection is difficult to eradicate with available therapies and may become chronic. The present article focuses on the use of the experimental mouse model of S. aureus-induced mastitis as a practical approach for the study of bovine mastitis. Results obtained regarding the pathogenesis of S. aureus and the development of new therapeutic approaches are discussed.
