Staphylococcal mastitis is considered as an important cause of contagious mastitis. Staphylococcus aureus, a common such cause, has implications with regard to public health also. Biofilm formation with regard to Staphylococcus aureus plays an important role in antibacterial resistance. Treatment which is not effective in case of mastitis has severe economic repercussions for the country and for livestock farmers. The study reports on the occurrence of biofilm in Staphylococcus aureus mastitis in two Malabari goats. The goats were treated with Inj. Amoxicillin-Sulbactam @ 10 mg per kg intravenously along with Inj. Meloxicam @ 0.5 mg per kg intramuscularly for 7 days, reduction in inflammation was recorded, but clot formation was however present.
