However, 41.4{\%} of the 99 strains tested were positive for β-lactamase production. The MIC90s of erythromycin, tetracycline, and streptomycin were >32.0 μg/ml. Initial testing with sulfadiazine-trimethoprim yielded an MIC90 of >64.0 μg/ml, but subsequent testing with thymidine phosphorylase-supplemented medium yielded an MIC90 of 0.06 μg/ml. Both lincomycin and spectinomycin were relatively inactive against the S. hyicus strains tested, with MIC90s of >64.0 and >128.0 μg/ml, respectively.
