Abstract:
The aim of this study was to isolate and identify Staphylococcus aureus from contaminated wounds of dogs. Total 24 swab samples were collected from the contaminated wounds of dogs. The collected swab samples were streaked on mannitol salt agar plates where after incubation the colour of mannitol salt agar was changed to metallic yellow colour which indicated the presence of Staphylococcus species. Further, biochemical characterization of isolated bacteria was done by Hi Staph Identification Kit, where 14 samples were biochemically positive out of 15 gram positive samples.
