Antimicrobial susceptibility of subgingival bacterial flora in cats with gingivitis.

Author information

Veterinary Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia 19104, USA.


The aerobic and anaerobic flora from gingival pockets of 40 cats with established gingivitis were cultured. The susceptibility of each isolate to four antimicrobial agents currently approved for use in cats (amoxicillin-clavulanic acid; clindamycin; cefadroxil; enrofloxacin) was determined. Amoxicillin-clavulanic acid (Clavamox) had the highest in-vitro susceptibility against all isolates (92%) and all anaerobes (99% [co-equal with clindamycin]) tested; enrofloxacin (Baytril) had the highest in-vitro susceptibility against all aerobes (90%) tested.
