Mastitis is common managemental problem of dairy goats. In the present study, prevalence of mastitis in Dera Din Pannah, Beetal, Teddy, Desi and non-descriptive dairy goat breeds, investigation of pathogenic bacteria of mastitis and their susceptibility to various antibiotics were tested. Milk samples were collected from district Muzaffargarh, Punjab and subjected to Surf Field Mastitis Test for screening. The positive samples were cultured on blood agar; tryptose agar and MacConkey’s agar for bacterial isolation taphylococcus aureus, Streptococcus agalactiae, Streptococcus ysagalactiae and Bacillus cereus were investigated. 235 milk samples from lactating goats of different breeds were tested. Out of which 51 (21.70%) were found positive for subclinical (18.29%) and clinical mastitis (3.4%). Enrofloaxin, Ciprofloaxin, Ampicillin, Gentamycin, Oxytetracycline, Penicillin, Amoxicillin, Norfloxacin, Chloramphenicol and Streptomycin were used for anti-bio-gram profiling against bacterial isolates. Chloramphenical, norfloxacin, gentamicin, penicillin and ciprofloxacin were found effective in vitro.
