Antimicrobial Resistance Evaluation of Iranian Ovine and Bovine Pasteurella multocida

Jalal Shayegh, Peyman Mikaili, Jalil Dolgari Sharaf and Ali Rastgu


Antibiotic resistance pattern of ovine and bovine Pasteurella multocida were evaluated to 16 antimicrobial agents by the disc diffusion method. About 75 and 42.85% of strains were resistant to lincomycin among ovine and bovine isolates, respectively. High level of penicillin resistance from bovine isolates is noticeable. Also, the antibiotic resistance patterns show the slight increase in resistance of other antibiotic and it is necessary to check antibiotic resistance patterns of P. multocida time to time in order to make effective decisions in treatment programming against animal disease.
