Abstract

Our objective was to determine the activity of ceftiofur sodium against Aeromonas hydrophila and A. sobria isolated from a variety of domestic and imported tropical fish. Twelve antimicrobial drugs were tested for effectiveness against these aeromonads using the Kirby-Bauer Disk Diffusion technique and minimum inhibitory concentration determinations. Ceftiofur sodium was highly effective in vitro against aeromonads isolated from ornamental fish. Of the 42 isolates of Aeromonas spp. tested, none were resistant to ceftiofur sodium; however, all isolates were resistant to ampicillin, and 71% were resistant to tetracycline.
