Abstract


Bacterial isolates obtained from 30 samples of uterine discharge with clinical endometritis were coagulase negative staphylococcus spp. (40.00 per cent), Staphylococcus aureus (30.00 per cent). Corynebacterium spp. (16.66 per cent). Bacillus spp. (6.67 per cent) and Pseudomonas (6.67 per cent). Only single type of bacterial organisms were recovered from each sample. Out of 127 samples 78 (61.41 per cent) were sensitive to Gentamicin, 75 (59.05 per cent) to Chloramphenicol 59 (46.45 per cent) to Furazolidone and 30 (23.62 per cent) to Cotrimoxazole. Intermediate senstnvlty to Cotrimoxazole .was seen ln isolates from 12 (9.45 per cent) sanlples.
