Disease Control & Surveillance

Effective disease control practices can prevent animal suffering and economic losses on the farm.

Advice and information is available through the Primary Agriculture Branch and the Chief Veterinary Office (CVO).

With information provided from the Veterinary Diagnostic Services (VDS) laboratory and also the provincial meat inspection program, the CVO monitors animal disease in Manitoba through diagnostic testing for key diseases and condemnation rates.
