Abstract:
A total of 400 samples were collected from 200 live chickens and 200 slaughtered chickens and examined for the presence of S. aureus. The susceptibility of 13 coagulase positive Staphylococcus aureus isolates from chickens in Zaria, Nigeria to 12 antimicrobials was determined by disk diffusion method according to CLSI standards. Coagulase positive S. aureus isolates had 100% resistance to tetracycline, penicillin and erythromycin and were in addition resistant to other antibiotics including vancomycin (46.2%).
