Disease Control & Surveillance

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

Advice and information is available through the Agriculture Branch and the Chief Veterinary Office (CVO)/Animal Health and Welfare Branch.

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.

CVO Disease Investigations Dashboards

The Chief Veterinary Office (CVO) leads the Provincial Animal Disease Investigation and Surveillance Program that routinely track provincially reported disease outbreaks. This program allows for timely prevention, identification, control and, where appropriate, eradication of animal diseases that are essential to Manitoba’s agricultural production, food security, public health, animal welfare and international market access.
