Abstract:

The present study was undertaken to assess the antibiotic sensitivity pattern of the organisms from mastitic milk submitted from different districts viz., Srinagar, Ganderbal, Budgam, and Pulwama of union territory of Jammu and Kashmir, India. A total of 106 milk samples received by Institute of Animal Health and Biological Products, Zakura, Srinagar were subjected to in-vitro antibiotic sensitivity tests against the ten commonly used antimicrobials. Antibiogram studies showed highest resistance against Amoxycillin, Ampicillin, Cefipime, Doxycycline and Ceftriaxone while majority of the cultures showed susceptibility to Gentamicin, Amikacin and Ciprofloxacin. The present study reports a high resistance among Beta-Lactam group of antibiotics suggesting the non-judicious use of these drugs because of their wide spectrum of action. It is concluded that antibiotic sensitivity testing should be performed whenever possible before using antimicrobials so as to select the proper and sensitive antimicrobial drugs and avoid the indiscriminate use of antimicrobial drugs and prevent development of resistance among the micro-organisms.
