Extended spectrum beta-lactamase (ESBL) production by animal pathogens is an emerging problem world-wide. E-test was performed for the detection of ESBL production in microbiota isolated from pyometra and otitis clinical cases of dogs presented to Veterinary clinics in Andhra Pradesh. Microbiota recovered from pyometra pus samples includes Escherichia coli (7, 46.6%), Staphylococcus (11, 73.3%) and Pseudomonas (12, 80%) species. Microbiota recovered from otitis pus samples includes Pseudomonas (8, 53.3%), Proteus vulgaris (9, 60%) and Staphylococcus (15, 100%) species. Of the seven E. coli isolates recovered, three (43%) isolates were positive for simultaneous production of ESBL and Amp C, two (28.5%) isolates were ESBL negative and two (28.5) isolates gave non-conclusive results. Of the 20 Pseudomonas isolates, 16 (80%) isolates were ESBL negative and four (20%) isolates gave non-conclusive results. All the 26 Staphylococcus and nine Proteus isolates were found negative for ESBL production.

Keywords: E. coli, ESBL, Otitis, Pseudomonas, Proteus, Pyometra, Staphylococcus.
