Abstract

The in vitro antibacterial sensitivity test was done on mastitis milk samples. In in vitro antibiotic drug sensitivity of bacterial cultures from the clinical mastitic samples showed that 80.55 per cent were sensitive to gentamicin, 75 per cent to enrofloxacin, 69.44 per cent to amikacin, 47.22 per cent to oxytetracycline, 44.44 per cent to ofloxacin, 22.22 per cent to amoxicillin and only 11.11 per cent to cefotaxime.  Gentamicin and enrofloxacin showed highest in vitro antibiotic drug sensitivity of bacterial cultures from the clinical mastitic milk samples.
