The antibiotic susceptibility of 32 strains of Staphylococcus aureus isolated from the mastitic milk of dairy goats was evaluated. The antibiotics tested were 3 fluoroquinolones that have been developed especially for use in veterinary medicine: danofloxacin, marbofloxacin, and orbifloxacin. Minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) tests were performed according to the microdilution broth method. The MIC(90) (concentration at which 90% inhibition is achieved) values obtained were 0.5, 1, and 1 mg/L for danofloxacin, marbofloxacin, and orbifloxacin, respectively. Danofloxacin was the most active fluoroquinolone tested against Staph. aureus strains isolated from milk; however, specific testing is required before using these drugs as therapy for the control of clinical mammary infections in goats.
