Abstract:
32 cases of superficial corneal ulcers were studied for the isolation identification and antibiogram of microorganisms associated with superficial corneal ulcers. Out of 32 cases 21(65.62%) dogs were positive for microbial cultures and 11(34.38%) did not exhibit any growth. In the positive cultures, 16 (76.19%) were Gram-Positive and 5(23.81%) were Gram- negative bacteria, respectively. The results of isolates were 13 (61.9%), 5(23.8%) and 3(14.28%) of Staphylococcus spp., E coli spp. and Streptococcus spp. Moxifloxacin 21(100%) is the most effective drug followed by Enrofloxacin 21(100%), Gentamicin 21(100%), Tobramycin 11(52.38%) and Amoxicillin 10 (47.61%) and Ofloxacin 0.
