Florfenicol resistance: Mannheimia haemolytica

Mannheimia (Pasteurella) species are common commensals on mucous membranes of most domestic animals worldwide but the organism seems to be enigmatic, changing its niche from commensal to a pathogenic bacterium under conditions of stress. M. haemolytica is associated with diseases in cattle causing pneumonic pasteurellosis, haemorrhagic septicaemia and abortion.
