The present study was designed to assess the bacterial isolation and their antibiogram from endometritis in slaughtered buffaloes. A total 110 uterine swabs at horn-body junction of slaughtered buffaloes were collected from local abattoir in Junagadh. Out of 110 uterine swabs 56 (50.90%) uterine samples showed the growth of various bacteria and remaining 54 swabs (49.10%) were found to be sterile. Among 56 uterine samples 50 swabs (89.28%) showed single isolate and remaining 06 (10.72%) exhibited mixed infection. The Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus spp. isolates (24.19%) top the list followed by Corynebacterium spp. (17.74%), Micrococcus spp. (14.52%), Fusobacterium spp. (8.06%), Pseudomonas spp. (4.84%), Bacillus spp. (4.84%) and Streptococcus spp. (1.61%). The antimicrobial susceptibility of these bacterial isolates were showed highest sensitivity against Chloramphenicol (83.9%) followed by Gentamicin (80.6%), Levofloxacin (77.4%), Oxytetracycline (77.4%), Ceftriaxone/Sulbactam (69.3%), Cefoperazone/Sulbactam (61.2%) and Amoxicillin/Sulbactam (33.9%).
