Zoonotic risks

Veterinarians must consider the potential for zoonotic diseases when forming a differentials list, and provide their clients with advice on these diseases, including how to protect themselves from infection and when to seek medical attention. Veterinarians must also be competent in undertaking their activities such that they minimise the risk of zoonotic disease transmission to themselves, other veterinary clinic staff, their clients, and the general public. Finally, many zoonotic diseases are notifiable.
