Aim: The research was to investigate the antibiotic resistance profile and to screen for Methicillin Resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) from nasal mucosa swab of dogs.
Materials and Methods: The samples were collected from 3 pet clinics, 3 K9 units, 1 veterinary teaching hospital and 1 kennel in Surabaya. Of the 50 total samples, 24 confirmed Staphylococcus aureus (S. aureus) strains, which were used for antibiotic sensitivity tests using a disc diffusion method and screening of MRSA used Oxacillin Resistance Screening for Base (ORSAB).
Results: This study showed that there were differences in antibiotic resistance patterns among different locations. Fourteen isolates were screened for MRSA by culture on ORSAB.
Conclusions: MRSA carriage were found on nasal swab of dogs, and dogs can act as reservoir of MRSA for spreading to human health.

Key words: Staphylococcus aureus, MRSA, Antibiotic Resistant, Dogs.
