Cattle and horses can contract salmonellosis during their hospitalisation. In effect, the animals, notably young and debilitated individuals, are subject to various stresses which make them more vunerable to infections. These stresses are linked to the hospitalisation itself, but also the treatments that the animal undergoes, notably antibiotic therapy. The hospital environmental risk lies in the presence of infected hospitalised animals, but also the existence of contaminated materials and premises (1 table, 1 box, 48 references).
