Upcoming symposium on emergency animal diseases


The Australian Animal Health Laboratory (AAHL), Australia’s high biocontainment facility, will host a symposium which focuses on the recognition, diagnosis and management of emergency animal diseases (EAD) for private and government vets.

The ‘Recent Advances in EADs symposium—which is an annual event—will be held 18-19 October at AAHL in Geelong, Victoria, and will bring together veterinary practitioners, animal health managers, diagnosticians and livestock industry representatives to learn and discuss recent advances in the field.

Early detection lies at the heart of protecting the health of Australia’s primary industries and its people, and vets are an important component in Australia’s network of biosecurity measures.

“We need the people on the ground to have the knowledge and skills to monitor, recognise and report signs of emergency animal diseases early on,” AAHL director Dr Kurt Zuelke said.

Registration is free on the symposium website.
