A total of 82 strains of Salmonella belonging to 17 different serotypes recovered from foods of animal origin were in this study. Out of 39 cell free culture supernatants (CFCS), tested for enterotoxigenicity, 26 (66.67%) were positive in rabbit ileal loops. None were found positive for enterotoxigenicity in infant mouse model. According to the disc diffusion methods of testing, gentamycin, nalidixic acid and chloramphenicol were found to be most effective against Salmonella organism. Erythromycin and oxytetracycline were least effective.
