An adult German Shepherd dog was presented with skin lesions. The dog was previously treated for the condition with improvement and then recurred later. On culture studies, Staphylococcus aureus and beta hemolytic Streptococcus sp. were present. Based on the clinical signs, the condition was diagnosed as deep pyoderma. Treatment was instituted with linezolid, based on sensitivity studies, with no recurrence. The public health implications should be carefully taken into consideration when using antibacterials at the highest end of the spectrum.
