The present study was undertaken with the intention of identifying and characterizing the common bacteria causing canine pyometra. Ten cases confirmed of canine pyometra presented at University Veterinary Hospital, Mannuthy, formed the subjects of this study. Vaginal swabs were collected aseptically for identification of the causative organism. Based on the cultural, morphological and biochemical characterization, the isolates from majority of the cases were identified as Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus. However, a few isolates were identified as Streptococcus, Pseudomonas and Bacillus. On antibiogram, many of these isolates were found to be resistant to most of the commonly used antibiotics except a few, which highlights the significance of antimicrobial resistance. About ninety per cent of the cases were sensitive to ceftriaxone- tazobactam. The present study emphasizes the importance of identifying the bacterial agents involved in pathogenesis of canine pyometra, and the requisite of an empiric antibiotic therapy initially to be confirmed soon after by an antibiotic susceptibility assessment for effective medical management of the uterine disorder.

Keywords: Canine, Pyometra, Antibiogram, Staphylococcus, Escherichia coli, Streptococcus and Pseudomonas
