Isolation and antibiogram of aerobic bacterial pathogen associated with respiratory tract of apparently healthy goats


Author(s): Sharmita Doley and Nekibuddin Ahmed

Abstract: The study was designed for isolation and characterization of probable bacterial pathogens associated with respiratory tract of apparently healthy goats and antibiogram of the isolates. A total of 117 nasal swab samples were collected aseptically from healthy goats and standard microbiological techniques were used for isolation and identification of bacterial species. Antibiotic sensitivity of bacterial isolates was performed. The isolated bacterial species were Staphylococcus spp. (24%); Bacillus spp. (24%); E. coli (24%) and Pseudomonas spp. (28%). From this study it can be concluded that most of the isolated bacteria commonly act as primary pathogens and also as opportunistic pathogens capable of causing disease if they cross normal defenses of the host.
