About the course

Bacterial culture and antimicrobial susceptibility testing is not necessary in all cases where the diagnosis can be confirmed using clinical signs and cytology. However, it should be performed where determining the identity of the bacteria and their antimicrobial susceptibility pattern is important (e.g. where there is a treatment failure, rod bacteria, deep or complex infections and/or any suspicion of antimicrobial resistance). This webinar will discuss how to collect representative samples and how to interpret the results. In particular, we’ll cover how to understand breakpoints and minimum inhibitory concentrations.
