Özet

Uterine contents of 40 bitches with pyometra were examined bacteriologically. Bacterial growth occured in 37 (92.5%) of the 40 uterine contents. E. coli (46.66%) was the most common bacteria isolated. The other microorganisms in descending order of frequency were Enterobacter cloacae (16%), Klebsiella pneumoniae (7%), Streptococcus canis (7%), coagulase-negative Staphylococcus sp. (7%), Enterobacter aerogenes (4.44%), Streptococcus dysgalactia subs.equisimilis (4.44%), Proteus mirabilis (2.22%), Serratia marcescens (2.22%), Staphylococcus intermedius (2.22%), and Pseudomonas aeruginosa (2.22%). Susceptibility to anitibiotics of the isolates was investigated. 73.33% of the isolates were found to be sensitive to Cefpirom, while penicillin G was detected as the least effective antibiotic with a rate of 2.22%.
