Abstract: In this study, twenty clinically healthy male camels (Camelus dromedarius) wrestling in traditional competitions were used to investigate preputial aerobic bacterial flora and antibiotic susceptibility. The aerobic bacteria included Serratia liquifaciens, Staphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus sp., Klebsiella ozaenae, Pseudomonas sp., Shigella sp., Enterobacter cloaceae, Flavobacterium sp., Actinomyces sp., Acinetobacter sp., Acinetobacter calcoaceticus and Bacillus sp. were the most common organisms and identified from the preputial samples. In this study, antibiotic susceptibility and resistance were also studied. All of the isolates that were identified in this study were susceptible to ciprofloxacine (100%), danofloxacine (89.2%) and resistant to cloxacillin (100%), sulbactam-ampicillin (85.7%) and cefuroxim sodium (64.2%).
