Microbiological investigations were performed on urine samples from 108 cows affected by urothelial tumors of the urinary bladder. Bacteria, frequently of mixed population, were isolated from 100 animals. Gram-positive bacteria prevailed, with Staphylococcus spp. and Bacillus spp. being the most common.
