Summary statistics of adherence of S. pseudintermedius to corneocytes. Boxplots illustrating the count of four Staphylococcus pseudintermedius strains (S1-S4) adhering to corneocytes collected from five different dogs (D1-D5). The counts (y-axis) express the summary statistics of number of adhered bacteria per microscopic field for each dog-strain combination. The line within each box represents median; the bottom and top lines of the box represent lower quartile (Q1) and upper quartile (Q3). D1 and D2, persistent carriers; D3 and D4, intermittent carriers; D5, non-carrier; S1-S4, strains from dogs D1-D4.
