Abstract: This study was designed to study the microbiological status of the foreskin mucosa in 100 healthy dogs and determine their antibiotic sensitivity. The most frequently identified organism in the dog foreskin was Staphylococcus sp. (36%) followed in order of frequency by E. coli (30%), Proteus sp. (16%), Pseudomonas sp. (6%), Streptococcus sp. (6%), Bacillus sp. (4%) and Corynebacterium sp. (2%). The isolated strains were subjected to antibiotic susceptibility testing. Staphylococcus sp., E. coli, Streptococcus sp., Bacillus sp. and Corynebacterium sp. were very frequently susceptible to danofloxacin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, cloxacillin, amoxicilin and ceftiofur. It is concluded that the use of danofloxacin, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, cloxacillin, amoxicilin and ceftiofur can be useful in the treatment of infections of the male genital organ.
