This subject introduces students to the scientific basis of disease recognition in populations of animals. It explores causes of disease in populations of production, companion and laboratory animals, the mechanisms of disease processes and their transmission, principles of biosecurity, and the scientific basis of technologies and procedures available for monitoring disease status. Students will acquire skills in a variety of techniques used to monitor the health of populations of animals, and will develop abilities in critical analysis of animal health reports.
This course aims to equip students with an understanding of techniques used to assess the health of individual animals and populations of animals, as well as an understanding of the biological basis of these tests. Students satisfactorily completing this course will also acquire skills in performing a range of laboratory tests used in monitoring the health of populations of animals.
