Pasteurella infections in horses are not frequent and only a few Pasteurella have been reported causing infection in horses. Pasteurella rarely causes any fatal infection in horses but in association with other bacteria or virus may be problematic. Since March 2011 to September 2017 we encountered only two cases where Pasteurella strains could be detected. In one case horse with conjunctivitis and ocular discharges had mixed infection of Pasteurella dagmatis and Streptococcus equi ssp. zooepidemicus, and in another case of strangles, Pasteurella caballi could be isolated along with Streptococcus equi ssp. equi. In both, the cases Pasteurella isolates were sensitive to most of the commonly used antibiotics. Both the cases were cured after strepto-penicillin treatment.
