Actinobacillus suis was isolated from 4 septicemic suckling piglets of two farms in November 1990 and January 1993. The isolates could grow on MacConkey agar medium of two of four companies tested, while the isolate showed little or no growth on the other two. These isolates were highly sensitive to erythromycin, enrofloxacin, danofloxacin and sulfamethoxazole-trimethoprim, while resistant to kanamycin and spiramycin. Further, some were resistant to penicillins and streptomycin.
