The major intramammary antimicrobial treatments that have been used with different success rates to control bovine mastitis include beta-lactams such as natural G penicillins (sodium, potassium, procaine and benzathine), synthetic ones such as ampicillin, amoxicillin and anti-staphylococcus drugs (cloxacillin, oxacillin, nafcillin, meticillin); cephalosporins (Cefapirin, cefalonium, cephalothin, cefoperazone, ceftiofur, cefquinome); aminoglycosides such as dihydrostreptomycin, gentamicin and neomycin; aminocoumarins (novobiocin); fluoroquinolones (norfloxacin); tetracyclines (oxytetracycline); macrolides (erythromycin); lincosamides such as lincomycin and pirlimycin; chloramphenicol, among others.

The antibiotic regimen was switched to Meropenem (targeting Gram negative bacteria, especially extended spectrum beta-lactamase producing microorganisms) and Teicoplanin (targeting Gram positive bacteria and especially meticillin resistant staphylococci), but without resolution of the febrile syndrome over the next 48 hours.
Among the microorganisms grown in culture, the gram positive ones with meticillin resistance and the gram negative ones which were sensitive to only meropenem, sefaperazon-sulbactam and ciprofloxacin were considered to have multiple antibiotic resistance.
