Bacterial Isolation and Antibiogram of Uterine Lavage from Repeat Breeder Cows Suffering from Subclinical Endometritis

DOI:Coming soon...


A total 500 cows were randomly selected from college livestock farm, Kuthuliya and different villages in and around Rewa (M.P.). After recording history all the animals were subjected to gynaeco-clinical examination, Whiteside test and endometrial cytology by cytobrush technique. On the basis of above tests performed all the animals were selected for the study. They were divided into three groups as follows: Normal (n=280), Clinical endometritis (n=80) and Subclinical endometritis (n=140). All the animals were subjected to aseptic collection of uterine fluid by low volume lavage technique. Uterine fluid samples obtained were used for microbial assay and antibiotic sensitivity tests. Among the bacterial isolates Staphylococcus species (36.31%) was highly prevalent. The antibiotic sensitivity of isolates was found to be maximum for ceftriaxone and sulbactum combination 91.67 per cent followed by levofloxacin 89.07, ciprofloxacin 79.69, ceftriaxone 73.43, enrofloxacin 61.45 and gentamicin 56.78 per cent, respectively. It was concluded that Staphylococcus species was highly prevalent bacteria isolated and a combination of ceftriaxone and sulbactum was found to be highly sensitive.
