During the present study, 13 P. multocida were obtained by cultural, biochemical methods from 89 suspected cases of haemorrahic septicemia, pasteurellosis and fowl cholera from the diffrent animals and birds. P. multocida species specific PCR provides rapid and specific identification of all serotype of pasteurella multocida and can be used as a rapid method for detection of Pasteurella multocida infection in animals and birds. Antibiotic sensitivity pattern of the isolate reveals that enrofloxacin, flumequine, chloramphanicol and cephalexin were most effective (100%) followed by pefloxacin (92.31%), ciprofloxacin (46.15%) and amoxycillin (30.77%). While all the P. multocida isolate were found to be resistant against sulphadiazine (100%).
