*We tested 358 isolates by disk diffusion for resistance to ampicillin (10 μg in disk), SXT (25 μg in disk), and ciprofloxacin (5 μg in disk). MICs were determined by using Etest. Strains were classified as resistant or susceptible according to Clinical Laboratory Standards Institute guidelines; E. coli ATCC 25922 was used as a control. Five isolates had unknown serotypes and were excluded from analysis. Isolate numbers for individual antibiotics do not always add up to the total number of isolates with any resistance because some isolates were resistant to >1 drug. SXT, trimethoprim/
