Pyometra infections are commonly found in rabbit. In this study, a two-year-old rabbit with the history of heavy cervico-vaginal discharge was examined. Vaginal swab was collected aseptically and processed for bacterial identification. Gram postitive cocci was identified in gram staining. Staphylococcus aureus was isolated on selective media (Baired Parker Agar) exhibited jet-black colonies with halo around and confirmed by biochemical tests such as catalase positive, oxidase negative and coagulase positive. Antibiogram assay of Staphylococcus strain revealed multidrug resistance for many antibiotics. Only quinolones and fluoroquinolones groups of antibiotic were found sensitive for Staphylococcus aureus infection.
