Infections with multi-drug resistant bacteria are a great challenge in human and veterinary medicine. The purpose of this study was to determine the prevalence and the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of Pseudomonas aeruginosa isolated from clinical samples of different animal species. Of the 43 samples tested, four revealed presence of P. aeruginosa with an overall prevalence of 9.30% with 3.03% in bovines and 22.22% in canines clinical cases. In antimicrobial susceptibility testing, isolates exhibited the highest resistance against third generation cephalosporins with 100% resistance to ceftazidime, ceftriaxone, cefotaxime and ceftazidime-tazobactam while half of the isolates showed resistance for polymixin B and 75% were resistant to peperacillin. However, most of the amino glycosides and qunilones antibiotics used in the study were found effective with 100% sensitivity to gentamicin, tobramicin, amikacinciprofloxacin, gatifloxacin, gemifloxacin and ofloxacin.
