Personal experience

I'm closely following veterinary literature at the moment; my cat, Mr. Clark, has acquired, on top of his carcinoma, drug-sensitive Acitenobacter combined with Staphylococci, non-hemolytic Streptococci, and multidrug resistant Pseudomonas. We're still working out the therapy for the last, although the first three are sensitive to a veterinary fluoroquinolone along with amoxicillin and clavulanic acid. Hopefully, more sensitivities tomorrow. He's doing fairly well. Howard C. Berkowitz 14:39, 2 May 2010 (UTC)
