Abstract

         To isolate the common bacteria present in urinary tract orifices, and skin of rabbits, 18  adults rabbits of either sex, of 1-2 kg b.wt. local and albino breed were depended. In current study the isolated symbiotic bacteria from the skin and urinary tract exit of rabbits were identified based on their morphological, cultural, physiological and biochemical characters in addition to  their sensitivity to ethanol extract of pomegranate peel,  Melia azedarach stem, Lantana cammra fruit, L. cammara  flowers and L. cammara leaves using well diffusion methods.The results showed that the most common isolates were  Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, Pseudomonas, Klebsiella, Bacillus and E. coli. The ethanol -aqueous extracts of pomegranate peel and L cammara leaves were of the more inhibitory effects against Staphylococcus , E. coli and Streptococcus .
