dc.description.abstract Bacterial and fungal culturing was conducted on samples taken from the vaginal fornix of 106 cows , of which 42 had vaginitis and 64 had normal vaginas . The diagnosis of vaginitis and non -vaginitis samples was determined by histologic examination . Aerobic , anaerobic , and microaerophilic cultures were done . In addition , cultures were performed for Campylobacter sp . , Ureaplasma sp . , Mycoplasma sp . , Tritrichomonas foetus , and fungi . All 106 samples contained mixed aerobic bacterial cultures . The more frequent aerobic isolates included Acinetobacter lwoffii , Arcanobacterium pyogenes , Escherichia coli , Corynebacterium spp . , and Streptococcus spp . These organisms were isolated from both groups of cows , but more frequently from the vaginitis group . Anaerobic isolates included Peptostreptococcus spp . , Prevotella spp . , and Fusobacterium spp . The fungal isolates included Aspergillus sp . , Mucor sp . , and Penicillium sp . en_US
