VTMED 6420 - Transboundary and Emerging Diseases of Animals

Spring. 1 credit. Letter grades only.

Enrollment limited to: 20 students. Second-, third-, and fourth-year veterinary students.

K. Havas, P. Ospina.

Describes the etiology, epidemiology, clinical signs, gross pathology, differential diagnosis, methods of spread, reservoir hosts, and control of the most important foreign and emerging animal diseases that present serious economic threats to the United States. Several foreign and emerging animal diseases are also important zoonoses affecting public health. The impact of foot-and mouth disease, avian influenza virus, bovine spongiform encephalopathy, and chronic wasting disease are good examples of the need to emphasize the importance of these diseases to practicing veterinarians so they in turn can educate producers, consumers, and the public in general.
