Abstract

Present communication describes a case of clinical mastitis in a crossbred cow associated with a rare but zooncrtic pathogen-Rhodococcus equi. The isolate was found resistant to cefadroxil, ampicillin/cloxacillin, tetracycline, erythromycin, ampicillin and nitrofurantoin while as it was found sensitive to chloramphenicol, co-trimoxazole, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, sulphamethizole, gentamicin and kanamycin. The consumption of such raw milk poses a public health threat.
