Abstract

 The present study aimed to evaluate the antibiotic RESISTANCE PATTERN of ESCHERICHIA COLI strains isolated from animals to ascertain the levels of antibiotic resistance pervasiveness. A total of 28 E. coli strains were isolated from faecal samples and the antibiotic RESISTANCE PATTERN of E. coli strains was determined by means of disc diffusion assay. The RESISTANCE PATTERN determined for all strains was amoxicillin, streptomycin, cefepime, azteronam, amoxicillin/clavulanic acid, ciprofloxacin and ceftriaxone. About 50-75% of the strains were reported as resistant to more than five antibiotics (multidrug-resistant). This might result in broadening of the antibiotic resistance canvas among animals and from animals to human taking the animal food products or living in close contact with them.
