Resumo

Necrotizing soft tissue infections (NSTI) are diseases that can affect the skin, subcutaneous tissue, superficial fascia, and occasionally, deep fascia, muscle tissue and adipose tissue. They present states of necrosis, which can lead to systemic toxicity and high rates of mortality. This paper describes the occurrence of a NSTI in a six year-old female beagle. The animal presented pain, areas of edema, erythema, loss of sensitivity and crepitations, in the right flank, from the dorso-lumbar area to the mammary gland. In the bacterial culture, Staphylococcus pseudintermedius and Group B Streptococcus, were isolated. The biopsy revealed necrotizing cellulites. Treatment was administered with ceftriaxone (50 mg/kg IV 12/12h), metronidazole (25 mg/kg 12/12h), and tramadol clorhidrate (4 mg/kg IV 8/8h). Wound treatment included extensive cleanings, every twelve hours, with warm diluted iodopovidone (0,01%) and compressive bandages. The diagnosis and early treatment of this disease allows a better prognosis for affected animals
