Among the viruses, infection with canine parvovirus 2 (CPV-2) was considered as highly contagious and causes acute haemorrhagic gastroenteritis and myocarditis in dogs. In the present study, faecal samples from fourteen pups affected with canine parvoviral enteritis were subjected to detailed bacteriological examination. It revealed the presence of bacterial species like E. coli, Salmonella spp., Klebsiella spp., Pseudomonas spp., Staphylococcus spp., and Streptococcus spp. in different combinations along with CPV infection. Invitro antibiotic sensitivity test of whole cultures revealed highest sensitivity to amikacin (85.71 %) followed by other antibiotics such as cefepime, chloramphenicol, cefotaxime, ceftriaxone, levofloxacin, ceftazidime and amoxycillin with clavulanic acid and all the samples exhibited resistance to ampicillin and metronidazole.

Keywords: Antibiogram, Bacteria, Canine parvoviral enteritis, Dogs.
