Isolation and antimicrobial susceptibility profiling of bacteria from canine cystitis

Dr. Kamal Hasan, Dr. Poorna Chandra and Dr. Veeresh HB
The present study was envisaged to record the prevalence of different bacteria in canine cystitis cases and their antibiogram to select suitable antibiotic for the effective treatment. Early and specific use of antimicrobials significantly limits the severity of the in present study the bacterial isolates from canine cystitis cases were identified up to species level disease and in many cases prevent the appearance of any visible sign of infection. However, the indiscriminate use of antimicrobial is leading to development of resistance in microbes. Thus the regular screening for the selection of suitable and effective antimicrobial is need of the day. With this objective based on cultural and biochemical characteristics. Among 30 samples, 23 samples yielded single isolates and the percentage of isolates were Staphylococcus 12 (60%), Escherchia coli spp. 08 (32%), Proteus spp. 01 (4%), Klebsiella spp. 01 (4%) and Enterobacter spp. 01 (4%).The development of antimicrobial resistance is the important drawback in the treatment of urinary tract infections. The present study had maximum sensitivity to Enrofloxacin, Amikacin and Trimethoprim/sulfamethoxazole and least sensitivity to Cefpodoxime.
