 Clinical features of feline bacterial keratitis

Clinical features of feline bacterial keratitis

A study evaluated records from eighty-one cats with bacterial keratitis confirmed by corneal culture. Animal signalment, bacterial isolates, aerobic bacteria in vitro antimicrobial susceptibility test results, and pertinent clinical features were recorded. More than 100 aerobic bacterial isolates were recovered from corneal samples. The most frequent bacteria isolated were Staphylococcus species, which constituted 55% (56/102) of total isolates.

Aerobic bacterial isolates grouped together had the highest percentage of susceptibility to ofloxacin (100%), ciprofloxacin (94%), chloramphenicol (93%), doxycycline (92%), ticarcillin (90%), gentamicin (89%), moxifloxacin (89%), tobramycin (86%), neomycin (85%), amikacin (84%), and cefazolin (84%).

The same isolates had the lowest percentage of susceptibility to polymyxin B (2%), bacitracin (15%), and clindamycin (31%).
