Antimicrobial susceptibility to 30 antimicrobial agents of 31 C. difficile isolates from pigs, calves, dogs and a horse was examined. The method was broth microdilution on commercially available plates for monitoring resistance of anaerobic and Gram-positive bacteria. All tested isolates were inhibited by concentrations that did not exceed 0.5 µg/ml for vancomycin and 1 µg/ml for metronidazole. E-test was performed for further determination of MICs. The results of two methods were agreeable for all but one strain. The broth microdilution method in this study showed as reproducible and reliable

This was invited lecture at meeting dedicated to C. difficile organized by French Microbiological Society. It has covered current spread of C. difficile within animal reservoir and possible transmission routes between humans and animals and their importance for community associated C. difficile infections.

The results of this study indicate that young domestic small ruminants may also be the reservoir of C. difficile and are colonized with similiar ribotypes as other animals and humans. Ribotype 014/020 found in goat is the most prevalent in Slovenia and was also isolated from humans, poultry, calves, dog and the environment.
