Pseudomonas spp. are environmental mastitiscausing pathogens that are Gram-negative and similar in structure to other coliform mastitis pathogens. Pseudomonas spp. have been isolated from milking parlor drop hoses and are known to cause mastitis through the use of water during milking. When grown on blood agar, Pseudomonas spp. have been found to
smell like grapes.
