Animal Diseases

Tasmania's best defence against the spread of animal and poultry diseases is for owners and those who work with animals and poultry to be able to recognise the symptoms. With all animal and poultry diseases, early diagnosis is most important. These links provide some information on various animal and poultry diseases.

Report any notifiable animal disease on the all hours emergency disease hotline: 1800 675 888.
