Cells are coccobacillary to rod shaped. Nonmotile.
Colonies are similar to P. canis or P. stomatis. Nonhemolytic. V-factor independent.
Growth on MacConkey is negative.
Strains are isolated from different animal hosts and from human dog-bite wounds or cat scratches.
Unknown. Possible wound contaminant.
