In the past undergraduates in veterinary medicine were not able to envisage any practical use for their laboratory training in bacteriology. When a practitioner required a cultural examination it was necessary to submit the specimen to an established laboratory and three or more days would elapse before a reply was received. There has been a marked change in this approach to bacteriology within the last few years and it is the purpose of this presentatioll to explain how bacteriological methods can be used in a clinical practice.
