Pain, erythema, swelling, arthritis, tendosynovitis and periostitis are frequent signs of infection of subcutaneous tissues caused by Pasteurella multocida and Pasteurella dagmatis, which are members of the normal oral bacterial flora of cats. A total of 48 Pasteurella strains were isolated from the oral cavity of 33 cats from the 50 examined animals. On the basis of carbon utilisation test, 35 isolates were identified as P. multocida; 12 as P. dagmatis and 1 as P. canis. Five from each strains of the examined P. multocida and P. dagmatis proved to be sensitive to the antibiotics (penicillin G, amoxicillin, cefoperazone, oxytetracycline, minocycline, ciprofloxacine) most widely used for the treatment of wound infections after cat bites.
