  13 strains from previously isolated and identified domestic pets, Chryseobacterium, Citrobacter, Enterobacter, Hafnia, Klebsiella, Morganella, Pantoea, Photobacterium, Pleisomonas, Pseudomonas, Salmonella, Serratia and Vibrio were analyzed. Tricanged antibiograms of each strain were performed, with respect to the conventional method called Kirby Bauer, to observe the susceptibility by disc diffusion of each of them with 16 antibiotics of which as a result the following was obtained sensitivity to the total strains analysed; Cefotaxima with 46%, Metronidazole 53%, Dicloxacillin 38%, Cephaxine 30%, Ciprofloxacin 100%, Nitrofurantoin 92%, Erythromycin, Amoxicillin 100%, Trimethoprim-Sulfalmetoxazole 100%, Cephalotin 53%, Gentamicin 100%, Amikacin 100%, Ceftriaxone 61%, Benzipenicillin 31%, Ampicillin 100%, Erythromycin 69%, Chloramphenicol 100%. Also resulting in Photobacterium being the genus of bacteria that exhibited the most resistance.
