Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to investigate the ecological studies of S. aureus isolates from poultry meat and associated environment in and around Junagadh District. A total of 200 Poultry meat and associated environment samples which comprised of Tracheal swabs (n=40), Cloacal swabs (n=40), Skin swabs (n=40), Meat (n=40) and environment sample (knife samples (n=20) and butcher’s hand swabs (n=20) were collected from different retail poultry meat shops located in and around Junagadh district. Out of 200 samples, 27 isolates of S. aureus were found positive for S. aureus by culture and these isolates were further confirmed by biochemical test. The obtained S. aureus isolates were subjected to antibiotic sensitivity test. The isolates were found highly resistant to the Ampicillin (70.37%) followed by Tetracycline (62.96%) Co-Trimoxazole (33.33%), Methicillin (25.92%), Chloramphenicol (22.22%) and Vancomycin (18.51%) in their decreasing order. This study confirmed the presence of S. aureus, especially antibiotic-resistant strains in poultry meat.
