Antibiotics are commonly prescribed for humans and animals for the prevention and treatment of various microbial diseases. This study was carried out for the evaluation of enrofloxacin residue in quail meat in Yazd city by HPLC. For this, 50 meat samples were collected from quail meats that supplied in Yazd from winter to spring in 2014-2015. Results showed that 11 samples (22%) were positive for enrofloxacin residue. The minimum and maximum concentrations of enrofloxacin in the samples were 3.08 and 117.09 μg/Kg, respectively. The mean value of enrofloxacin concentration in the positive samples was 8.6 ± 21.28 μg/Kg. The concentration of enrofloxacin in 14% of the samples was higher than European Maximum Residual Level (30 μg/Kg). In conclusion, for improvement of hygienic quality of quail meat, it is necessary to apply suitable strategy for legality of withdrawal time for antibiotic consumption.
