Abstract:
In the current investigation, which involved screening 252 dogs for dermatological issues, 52 incidences of bacterial dermatitis were noted. There were 73.07% and 26.92%, respectively, of individuals with mild to moderate and severe bacterial dermatitis. Clinical symptoms of erythema (69.23%), alopecia (57.69%), pruritus (53.84%), crusts (50.00%), papules (34.61%), pustules (28.84%), scales (23.07%), and epidermal collarettes (15.38%) were found in 52 dogs with bacterial dermatitis. All 52 samples from the dogs with bacterial dermatitis that were collected and processed for a detailed culture analysis tested positive for 72 isolates. 52/72 of these were Staphylococci spp. (72.22%), with S. intermedius (65.38%), S. aureus (12.30%), and S. epidermidis (6.13%) making up the 34 isolates. However, 20 of these samples also showed the presence of E. coli in 3 (4.17%) of the samples, Klebsiella spp. in 9 (12.5%), and Pseudomonas spp. in 8 dogs (11.11%) that were mixed with staphylococci. Single and mixed bacterial infections occurred at rates of 61.53 and 38.47%, respectively.
