Abstract

An increase in prevalence of multidrug-resistant Acinetobacter spp. in hospitalized animals was observed at the Justus-Liebig-University (Germany). Genotypic analysis of 56 isolates during 2000-2008 showed 3 clusters that corresponded to European clones I-III. Results indicate spread of genotypically related strains within and among veterinary clinics in Germany.
