Disease Monitoring

Disease monitoring (surveillance) of animals for foot and mouth disease (FMD) involves close observation as the lesions are typically mild or inapparent in adult sheep. The materials below will help caretakers and shepherds find disease early. Additionally, producers should establish a relationship with a USDA Category II Accredited Veterinarian, as they play a vital role in disease monitoring and sample collection during an outbreak. Remember to document all training (visit Forms page).

See Something, Say Something…

If you see something that looks like FMD, say something to animal health officials
