Proteus is the second most important bacteria in urinary infection in human. This bacterium could be found frequent in intestinal tract of poultry. In slaughter house the contamination of poultry carcasses with intestinal flora is normal when the poultry carcasses are put in the chiller for washing and cooling. In the other hand different antibiotics are used without antibiogram test in different ages in poultry houses for treatment and prevention of diseases. The role of animal for reservoir of resistance bacteria is very important. In this study 54 proteus isolates were screened for antimicrobial susceptibility to 13 selected antimicrobial agents. No the proteus isolates in this study were resistant to gentamycin. 96% of the isolates were resistant to at least to two or more antibiotics. One isolates exhibiting resistance to ten antibiotics and three isolates resistance to nine and five isolates resistance to seven anibiotics. The results showed that chicken could be a source of multiple antimicrobial-resistant proteus and this bacteria can be a worldwide problem both for veterinary and public health sectors.
