Abstract:

The study was performed for prevalence of bacteriological isolates recovered from faecal samples of domestic cats and their antibiotic sensitivity pattern. Total thirty rectal swabs were collected from Baroda for bacteriological isolation. The overall prevalence of bacteria was 93.33% (28). The prevalence of E. coli, Streptococcus spp., Staphylococcus spp., gram positive bacilli, gram negative coccobacilli and gram positive coccobacilli were 36.67% (11), 23.33% (7), 10.00% (3), 10.00% (3), 10.00% (3) and 03.33% (1) respectively. In-vitro antibiotic sensitivity pattern of all the bacterial isolates recovered from faecal samples of domestic cats revealed that the isolates were more sensitive to Gentamicin (71.43%) followed by Co-trimoxazole (57.14%), Colistin (33.33%), Enrofloxacin and Amoxyclav (28.57% each), Tetracycline (19.05%) and Ampicillin (14.29%).
