Abstract

Isolation, identification and antibiotic sensitivity of mycoplasmas in cattle pneumonia in the Kars area.

Abstract

Culture of the lungs of 109 pneumonic cattle yielded 12 Mycoplasma isolates (6 M. bovis, 4 M. bovirhinis and 2 M. arginini), 15 E. coli, 11 P. haemolytica, 8 P. multocida, 8 Staphylococcus, 7 Streptococcus, 3 Bacillus, and 1 Actinomyces. All the mycoplasmas were sensitive to enrofloxacin, danofloxacin, tilmicosin, tetracycline, and oxytetracycline, less sensitive to erythromycin and gentamicin, and resistant to streptomycin.
