Camel's urine and milk has various utilizations, which are helpful for man and animals. some investigation had demonstrated that camel's urine and milk lethally affects bacterial, there is next to no data about the antimicrobial impacts of camel urine on different microbial contaminating to animals. So, this investigation meant to look at between the antimicrobial effect of camel urine and milk against some animal important pathogens and to segregate microbes that may found in the camel urine and milk. Tests of camel urine and milk were tried for their antimicrobial action utilizing Mueller Hinton Agar. Look at its antimicrobial impact against certain microorganisms (S. aureus, E. coli; Bacillus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Candida albicans) The outcomes uncovered that the camel milk without bubbling have a substantial microbial development on supplement agar media anyway it was free subsequent to bubbling, since camel urine has no microbial development on supplement agar media or MacConkey agar with no treatment and the most elevated antimicrobial criticalness had from blended camel milk and urine against all analyzed microorganisms followed by urine alone followed by bubbled milk anyway unboiled milk had antimicrobial huge against just S. aureus and C. albicans. It has no impact against the inspected gram negative microscopic organisms. So, it could be concluded that the bubbled camel milk and camel urine have antimicrobial impact against pathogenicity instigated by E. coli and S. aureus, Bacillus, Pseudomonas and C. albicans. Additionally, camel milk has synergistic activity with camel urine which might be used to reduce the use of antibiotics and decrease bacterial antibiotic resistance.
