IDENTIFICATION OF BACTERIAL AGENTS CAUSING BOVINE MASTITIS IN RANCHI CITY & THEIR ANTIBIOGRAM

Keeping in mind the one health concept by WHO, which recognises that health of human beings is connected to health of animals and environment, my study recommends regular use of antimicrobial susceptibility testing of mastitis bacterial pathogens to decide the appropriate antimicrobial drug for treatment and to limit the indiscriminate use of antimicrobial drugs to avoid the development of resistance among microbes. Mastitis is a serious problem for the dairy cattle in many countries of the world. Among the microbial etiology, bacteria play a major role in the onset of the mastitis. Many of these bacteria are resistant to one or more classes of antibiotics. In the present study Staphylococcus aureus, Coagulase negative Staphylococcus, and Enterobacteriacea were identified as the predominant bacterial species causing mastitis in cattle in Ranchi. Antibiogram study revealed few vancomycin & linezolid resistant strains among Staphylococcus aureus and increasing numbers of methicillin resistant Staphylococcus spp.
