Abstract:

The study was designed with a view to isolate, identifies and characterizes Salmonella species from washing and rinsed water of broilers in pluck shops at Sreepur of Gazipur district in Bangladesh during the period from December 2011 to May 2012. A total of 30 samples collected from the different layers of drums of pluck shops’ were subjected to bacterial isolation and identification by using cultural and biochemical techniques. Furthermore, the isolated Salmonella species were characterized by antimicrobial susceptibility testing. Among the 27 positiveSalmonella isolates 11.11% (n = 3) were Salmonella pullorum, 29.83% isolates (n = 8) were Salmonella gallinarum and the rest 59.26% isolates (n = 16) were Salmonella typhimurium. In case of motility test performed by MIU media and hanging drop slide method, 40.74% isolates were non-motile and 59.26% isolates were motile. Salmonella spp. were resistant to doxycyclin and erythromycin. However, most of the Salmonella spp. were susceptible to sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim and gentamicin. Out of 27 Salmonella isolates, 75% Salmonella typhimurium, 100% Salmonella gallinarum and 100% Salmonella pullorum were detected as multidrug resistant. The findings of the study revealed the presence of multidrug resistant Salmonella species in washing and rinsed water of broilers in Pluck shops at Sreepur of Gazipur district in Bangladesh.
