The prevalence of Salmonella from the fecal of 1-6 months of 154 diarrheal pupies was 25.3%. The most serovar was S.Weltevreden from 23 serovars. While the prevalence of Salmonella from the fecal of 48 normal puppies was 22.9% and the most serovar was S. Anatum from total 7 serovars. No Shigella was found in this study. The drug sensitivities characteristic of Salmonella isolates were discussed base on the results ascertained by the disk diffusion method. Fifty isolates originated from the fecal of diarrheal and normal puppies were studied with 13 antimicrobial drugs and the results revealed that all Salmonella isolates were resistant to erythromycin but were sensitivity to cefotaxime and norfloxacin. Moreover, 46% of resistance isolates were resistant to more than two antimicrobial drugs and there were fourteen multiresistance patterns and the most one was S-T-DO-E.
