  • A Total Of 865 Samples Were Collected From Feces
  • Kidney
  • Lungs
  • Cecum
  • Intestine
  • Liver
  • Heart
  • Gizzard
  • And Cloacal Swabs From 525 Different Chickens
  • Salmonella Was Isolated From 130 Of The Samples

  • Pulsed-Field Gel Electrophoresis (Pfge)
  • And Antimicrobial Susceptibility Testing
  • Thirty-Nine Out Of The 41 Samples Serotyped Yielded Salmonella Hiduddify
  • Two Yielded A Rough Salmonella Serovar
  • The 39 Salmonella Hiduddify Isolates And The Two Rough Isolates Were Highly Similar By Pfge Typing
  • Indicating That All Of The Isolates Were Of The Same Serovar
  • A Low Frequency Of Resistance Was Found Among The Isolates
  • Except For Resistance To Ciprofloxacin For Which 23 (56%) Of The Isolates Tested Exhibited Resistanc
  • This Study Documents For The First Time The Isolation Of Salmonella Hiduddify In Chickens And Shows
  • It Also Documents A High Frequency Of Fluoroquinone Resistance In The Isolates Indicating The Presen
  • Further Studies Should Be Conducted To Reveal If The Serovar Is Present In Eggs And Causes Salmonell
