Abstract

The current work was conducted for isolation, identification and epidemiological frequency and distribution
of Proteus mirabilis from humans and Dogs, cats, scanning Vitek in addition (PCR) assay was confirm
detect isolates and Api 20E technique is also used in order diagnosis of P. mirabilis then determination
of antibiotics susceptibility pattern of recovered isolates. The human isolates showed that (89.47%) were
resistant Ampicillin, (42.10%) Ofloxacin, (57.14%) Cefoxitin, (57.14%) Gentamycin, (100%) Vancomycin,
(57.14%) Chloramphenicol, (89.47%) Trimethoprim, (100%) Amoxiclav, (57.89%) Streptomycin, (100%)
Tetracycline, (89.47%) Penicillin, (100%) Erythromycin. The dogs isolates showed resistance (64.28%) was
resistant Ampicillin, (35.71%) Ofloxacin, (46.1%) Cefoxitin, (53.8%) Gentamycin, (64.28%) Vancomycin,
(47.3%) Chloramphenicol, (64.28%) Trimethoprim, (64.28%) Amoxiclav, (42.85%) Streptomycin, (64.28%)
Tetracycline, (64.28%) Penicillin, (64.28%) Erythromycin, otherwise the cat’s isolates showed resistance
(35.71%) were Ampicillin -resistant, for Ofloxacin (35.71%), for Cefoxitin (35.71%), for Gentamycin
(35.71%), for Vancomycin (35.71%), for Chloramphenicol (35.71%), for Trimethoprim (35.71%), for
Amoxiclav (35.71%), for Streptomycin (35.71%), for Tetracycline (35.71%), for Penicillin (35.71%), for
Erythromycin (35.71%). The Proteus mirabilis was isolated from 33 out of 195 sample (16.92%) distributed
as 19 isolated from human and 14 from Dogs and Cats. The human isolates showed that (89.47%) were
resistant Ampicillin, (42.10%) Ofloxacin, (57.14%) Cefoxitin, (57.14%) Gentamycin, (100%) Vancomycin,
(57.14%) Chloramphenicol, (89.47%) Trimethoprim, (100%) Amoxiclav, (57.89%) Streptomycin, (100%)
Tetracycline, (89.47%) Penicillin, (100%) Erythromycin.
