Abstract

Enteric bacteria from the mesenteric lymph nodes and intestinal contents of normal horse, cattle and dog have been examined.

In the horse, genera Cloaca and Klebsiella were found rather frequently, however, Salmonella and Proteus were found rarely. On the other hand, in dogs, genera Salmonella and Proteus were often isolated, but Cloaca was infrequently.
