CARDONA A., José; ALVAREZ P., Jaime  e  ARRIETA B, Germán. ISOLATION AND IDENTIFICATION OF BACTERIAL AGENTS, PRODUCING ONFALITIS IN CALVES IN THE CORDOBA DEPARMENT. rev.udcaactual.divulg.cient. [online]. 2011, vol.14, n.2, pp.95-99. ISSN 0123-4226.

Omphalitis problems are very common in cattle farms, but its origin is occasionally unknown. With this study it was sought to isolate and identify bacterial pathogens, omphalitis producers in calves. A cross sectional nonprobabilistic study of no convenience was performed in calves affected by omphalitis, using 35 calves, aged between 3 to 90 days, randomly selected at ten live-stook farms in the municipality of Cereté-Córdoba (Colombia). The animals were evaluated by conducting a general clinical exam and detailed examination of the umbilicus, thus determining the production of inflammation at this organ and taking into account the absence or presence of fistula with drainage of purulent material. 48.57% of the calves observed showed omphalitis cannulae, while 51.42% did not present this problemwith cannulae. 100% of the animals studied had omphalitis. The most prevalent bacteria obtained from the samples were Staphylococcus aureus (22,5%), Escherichia coli (22,5%), Staphylococcus sp. (15%), Klebsiella sp. (9,68%), Proteus vulgaris (9,68%), Pseudomona sp. (6,46%), Proteus mirabilis (3,23%), Enterobacter sp. (3,23%), Chryseobacterium meningosepticus (3,23%), Alcaligenes sp. (1,40%), Citrobacter koseri (1.40%). It should be noted that 37% of the isolated bacteria were umbilical infections belonging to the group of total coliforms, which indicated the absence of a strict aseptic procedure in the management of neonatal umbilicus.
