Abstract: 

Introduction: Recently, there have been several reports of (Methicilline or oxacillin Resistance Staphylococcus Aureus) MRSA in both domestic and companion animals. The isolation of MRSA from animals was first reported in 1972 following its detection in milk from mastitic cows. Reports have suggested that the presence of MRSA in raw milk and meat products may constitute a health hazard to some consumers despite the rate of isolation being low. Our aim in this study was isolation MRSA in milk of bovine mastitis samples.
Methods: Milk samples taken aseptically from mastitis. Specimens were plated in blood agar, then
S.aureus bacteria by bacteriological method identified. For detection of MRSA we used from antibiogram methods with oxacillin disk.
Results: out of eighteen s.aureus isolated from clinically and subclinically mastitis, one isolate MRSA was detected.
Conclusion: It is now evident that S. aureus isolates derived from animals or products appear to harbour resistance to antimicrobials commonly used in human medicine, including methicillin.
