Abstract:

A total 116 dogs were presented with various affections of the ear, among them 67 (57.76%) cases were having the symptoms of otitis. The higher incidence was found in the age groups of 1-5 year (44.77%, n=30) followed other age groups. The breed wise incidence of was found to be highest in the Labrador (35.82%, n=24) followed by other breeds. 35 cases had bilateral (52.23%), 21 dogs had only right side ear (31.34%) involvement and 11 dogs had left side ear (16.41%) infection. Out of total 67 cases 58.20 percent (n=39) cases were male and 41.80% percent (n=28) cases were female.102 pus samples were collected aseptically for microbiological evaluation and antibiotics sensitivity test revealed 251 isolates from eight bacterial species. The bacterial isolates had different sensitivity pattern. Staphylococcus Spp. was found to be most dominant isolate and found highly sensitive to Cefotaxim and Ceftriaxone. The antibiotics sensitivity testing revealed Gentamycin (17.93%, n=45) to be highly sensitive drug followed by other antibiotics. All the dogs were recovered well without reoccurrence during period of study.
