Pyometra, a hormonally mediated diestrual disorder is described by thickening of the uterine lining and accumulation of uterine secretions (cystic endometrial hyperplasia). These secretions leaks out to the abdomen and forms ascites, which provides environment for bacterial growth. E. coli is the common organism that migrates from the vagina into the uterus and causes acsites. As a first report, a bacterium was isolated from such an ascitic fluid of pyoderma infected Rottweiler canine breed and further the organism was identified as klebsiella sp. based on biochemical tests. Antibiogram of klebsiella sp. revealed that the organism was sensitive to ciprofloxacin, erythromycin, tetracycline, ampicillin, amikacin and gentamycin and resistant to methicillin.
