Animal disease surveillance/動物の病気の監視

Animal disease surveillance is essential:

 it upholds the health and welfare animals, providing information to vets and animal owners so that diseases can be recognized, treated and prevented
 it protects public health from zoonotic disease (those diseases passed between humans and animals)
 it underpins our ability to export animals and their products
 it identifies new, emerging or exotic disease promptly, so that outbreaks can be tackled quickly and efficiently.
