This study was performed to isolate and identify bacteria from uterus with pyometra and examine their susceptibility to antimicrobial agents. Uterus of 16 bitches with pyometra were surgically removed by ovariohysteroctomy and then bacteria were isolated and identified. Also, susceptibility test to 15 antimicrobial agents was performed. Out of 16 bitches, 11 strains of Escherichia coli, 2 strains of Serratia marcescens, and 1 strain of Staphylococcus aureus and Salmonella spp. were identified. In antimicrobial susceptibility test, the majority of isolates were susceptible to enrofloxacin, norfloxacin, chloramphenicol, nalidixic acid, gentamicin, trimethprim-sulfamethazole, tetracycline, and moderately susceptible to carbenicillin, amikacin, ampicillin, neomycin, but resistant to vancomycin, streptomycin, bacitracin and colistin. In conclusion, E coli was the most common bacteria isolated from bitches with pyometra and those susceptible antimicrobial agents could be recommended to medical therapy of pyometra.
