Ul-Jabbar Mohammed A, Jassim NA., Salmonella antibiotic resistant isolates from heart, liver, gizzard, lung, ceca, spleen, bile and thigh muscle of broilers, Onl J Vet Res., 22 (10):961-966, 2018. Authors report Salmonella strains isolated from 35 heart, 39 liver, 36 gizzard, 27 lung, 25 ceca, 28 spleen, 26 bile and 24 thigh muscle samples from various broiler farms determined by morphology, staining and biochemistry. From the 39 (17%) positive samples, 38.5% were S. Typhimurium, 28.2% S. Enteritidis, 20.5% S. pullorum and 12.2% S. gallinarum. The bacteria were highly resistant to Penicillin-G, Erythromycin, and Ampicillin but sensitive to Gentamycin, Amoxycillin and Choloramphenicol.
