Veterinary disease surveillance in Sweden
Sweden is considering how it can implement surveillance of small animal disease. So five Swedish researchers and veterinarians came to the Leahurst campus on Tuesday 19th April to find out how SAVSNET works.
They included Ann Palmenberg who leads Animal health surveillance at the SVA, Sweden’s State Veterinary Institute. We had a full day that included how SAVSNET works, with some showcases of our current research. It concluded with a visit to a SAVSNET practice in Manchester to see how data is collected. It is hoped that over time, more countries will start to collect comparable companion animal health data to help further understanding of different diseases and conditions affecting companion animals internationally.
