The emergence and global spread of drug resistant Acinetobacter (A.) baumannii is a cause of great concern. The current knowledge on antibiotic resistance in A. baumannii from animal origin is mostly based on few internationally published case reports, investigations of strain collections and several whole genome analyses.
This lack of data results in a somewhat sketchy picture on how to assess the possible impact of drug resistant A. baumannii strains on veterinary and public health in Germany. Consequently, there is an urgent need to intensify the surveillance of A. baumannii in pet animals, the farm animal population and wildlife.
