Animal Clinic, Antibiotic, Antibiotic Resistance, Klebsiella Pneumoniae

Abstract [English]

The antibiotic resistance of Klebsiella pneumoniae has become a global health concern, leading in a reduction in the efficacy of various medications. This study seeks to determine the antibiotic resistance of K. pneumoniae isolated from cats hospitalized in Depok veterinary clinics. Surveys, sample collection, isolation, identification, and antibiotic susceptibility testing comprised the research technique. Seven K. pneumoniae isolates were discovered. There were seven cefotaxime resistant isolates, three amoxicillin resistant isolates, one gentamicin resistant isolate, and one enrofloxacin resistant strain. At the same concentration, one isolate shown intermediate susceptibility to amoxicillin, enrofloxacin, and doxycycline. Sensitivity was demonstrated by six gentamicin isolates, six doxycycline isolates, five enrofloxacin isolates, and three amoxicillin isolates. This information should help veterinarians choose the best efficient antibiotic to treat infections caused by these bacteria.
