Update on microbial profile and drug sensitivity of canine otitis

Ganesh Hegde, S Subapriya and S Vairamuthu
A total of 55 ear swabs collected aseptically from 55 dogs affected with otitis were analysed to identify the microorganisms causing otitis and to understand the recent trend in the sensitivity pattern of commonly used antimicrobial drugs for treating otitis in dogs. The study revealed canine population belonging to various breeds, different age groups and of both sexes were affected with otitis. In microbial culture, Pseudomonas, Streptococcus, Staphylococcus, E. coli, Proteus, Candida, Malaseezia, Rhizopus, Rhodotorula and Aspergillus spp were isolated. Overall sensitivity pattern indicated highest sensitivity to cefotaxime followed by gentamicin, enrofloxacin, azithromycin, tetracycline and amoxicillin.
