Abstract:

Bacterial organisms causing endometritis at 31.58 ± 0.13 days postpartum in crossbred dairy cows were investigated along with in-vitro antibiotic susceptibility test of seven selected antibiotics viz., enrofloxacin, oxytetracycline, ciprofloxacin, metronidazole, gentamicin, cephalexin and ceftriaxone. The most frequently isolated bacteria in the present study were E. coli (27.27%) followed by, Staphylococcus spp. (19.48%), Bacillus spp. (18.18%), Streptococcus spp. (15.58%), Enterobacter spp. (11.69%), Enterococcus spp. (5.19%) and Pseudomonas spp. (2.60%). Significant difference was noted in the sensitivity of different antibiotics (p< 0.01). Sensitivity (Z-test) of ciprofloxacin was significantly higher than all other antibiotics under study. Heirarchichal cluster analysis of antibiotics under present study revealed highest sensitivity for ciprofloxacin (88.31%) followed by enrofloxacin (54.79%).
