Aerobic Mesophilic Bacterial Flora of Vagina of Healthy Mithun (Bos frontalis)

In the study on 60 vaginal swabs of apparently healthy mithuns, aerobically growing mesophilic bacteria could be detected in 55 swabs. Probability of isolation of more than one type of bacteria was significantly higher (70%) than isolation of one type (21.7%) or no (8.3%) bacteria from mithun vaginal swabs. The 136 bacteria (29 Gram positive, GPBs and 107 Gram negative, GNBs) isolated could be identified belonging to 24 species of 13 genera. The commonly isolated bacteria were Escherichia coli (43.3%), Enterococcus casseliflavus (38.3%), Proteus penneri (25%), Pseudomonas aeruginosa (15%), Klebsiella pneumoniae (18.3%) and Aeromonas eucranophila (11.7%). All GPBs were sensitive to ciprofloxacin, tetracycline, norfloxacin, nalidixic acid, nitrofurantoin and netillin and all GNBs were sensitive to gentamicin. All K. pneumoniae and majority of the E. coli and Aeromonas isolates were resistant to ampicillin.
