A total of 200 bacterial isolates identified as Pasteurella multocida from pasteurellosis disease animals were analysed for their antibiotic susceptibilities towards 10 different antibiotics. Antibiotic sensitivity testing was determined by using both commercial discs and E-test strips. All isolates were susceptible to chloramphenicol (Cm), erythromycin (Em), gentamicin (Gm), kanamycin (Km) and trimethoprim + trimethoxazole (Sxt). Sixty five (32.5%) isolates were resistant towards ampicillin (Am), seventy six (38%) isolates were resistant to streptomycin (Sm) and forty one (20.5%) isolates were resistant to tetracycline (Te). All of them presented resistance to spectinomycin (SH) and triple sulphonamides (S3). Eight different pattern of antibiogram were displayed by all the serotype of P. multocida included the untypable isolates; S3SH (35%), S3SHTe (8%), SmS3SHTe (4%), AmS3SH (16%), AmS3SHTe (2.5%), SmS3SH (19.5%), AmSmS3SH (8.5%) and AmSmS3SHTe (6%).
