Pasteurella multocida infection

Common Name(s)

Pasteurella multocida infection

Pasteurella multocida are bacteria more commonly present in livestock and domestic animals (mostly cats and dogs) but may infect humans if they are bitten by an infected animal. Symptoms of a pasteurella multocida infection include inflammation (swelling/tenderness) of the skin, joint pain, respiratory issues, and swelling of lymph nodes. Bite wounds are treated by cleaning the flesh wound and in some cases getting stiches to close the cut. The pasteurella infection may be treated with specific antibiotic and antimicrobial medications. See a doctor for wound and infection treatment.
