Isolation and Characterization of Pasteurella Multocida From Caprine Pneumonic Lungs

By Animal Research International, University Of Nigeria, Nsukka.

Summary

ABSTRACT
By conventional microbiological methods, investigation was carried out in Nsukka and Enugu areas of Enugu State, Nigeria to determ ne the percentage frequency of occurrence of Pasteurella multocida from caprine pneumonic lungs in Nsukka and Enugu areas of Enugu State, Nigeria. In this study that spanned 12 years, a total of 350 pneumonic lung samples were collected from West African Dwarf goats, Sokoto Red goats and Fulani goats slaughtered in Nsukka and Enugu Municipal abattoirs in Enugu State. By cultural, biochemical and physiological attributes, four (4) of the isolates were characterized as Pasteurella multocida Both gross and histopathological lesions of the pneumonic lung specimens from which this aerobic bacterium was isolated were correlated with the organism. Inspite of the low percentage requency (1 14%) of isolation of Pasteurella multocida in this study, attention is drawn to the pathogenic potential of this organism for goats and other livestock in this par o Nigeria.
