Abstract:
20 cases of Deep corneal ulcers were studied for the isolation, identification and antibiogram of microorganisms associated with Deep corneal ulcers. Out of 20 cases 12 (60%) dogs were positive for microbial cultures and 8 (40%) did not exhibit any growth. In the positive cultures, 9 (75%) were Gram- positive and 3 (25%) were Gram-negative bacteria, respectively. The results of isolates were 7(58.34%), 3(25%) and 2(16.66%) of Staphylococcus spp., E. coli spp. and Streptococcus spp. Moxifloxacin 12(100%) is the most effective drug followed by Enrofloxacin 12(100%), Gentamicin 12(100%), Tobramycin 5(41.66%), Amoxicillin 5(41.66%) and Ofloxacin 5(41.66%).
