Abstract

SUMMARY

Thirty-six closed abscesses in the subcutis of cats were examined. Of 168 bacterial strains isolated, 121 (72%) were anaerobes and 47 (28%) were facultative anaerobes. Twenty-six abscesses contained mixtures of facultative anaerobes and anaerobes, six contained anaerobes only and four contained facultative anaerobes only. was the genus most commonly isolated (28.6% of all isolates) followed by (19.0%) and () (1 3.1%). was the most commonly isolated anaerobic species (13.2% of anaerobic isolates and 9.5% of all isolates) and was the most commonly isolated facultative anaerobe (46.8%; 13.1% of all isolates).
