If Koch could drink Vibrio cholerae, I am sure your dogs may 
drink Micrococcus.

The Genus Micrococcus has been amended:

Micrococcus agilis               BAS  -> Arthrobacter agilis                    
Micrococcus halobius             BAS  -> Nesterenkonia halobia                  
Micrococcus kristinae            BAS  -> Kocuria kristinae                      
Micrococcus luteus               AL                                             
Micrococcus lylae                AL                                             
Micrococcus nishinomiyaensis     BAS  -> Dermacoccus nishinomiyaensis           
Micrococcus roseus               BAS  -> Kocuria rosea                          
Micrococcus sedentarius          BAS  -> Kytococcus sedentarius                 
Micrococcus varians              BAS  -> Kocuria varians                        

You have better start with a query on the method used. If you put more 
information on the net, you may have comments from more people.

This bacteria has been found to be present in our well water -- the lab 
has stated that it is pathogenic and that we should have the system 
flushed and sanitized.  I have looked really hard for details on the 
effects of this bacteria on us and our 4 dogs but have not found much. 
It is a gram positive bacteria (high G + C strain).  This doesn't mean 
much to me -- does it mean something to someone out there?
