Veterinarians play an important role in detection, surveillance and management of Emergency AnimalDiseases (EADs). Early detection and immediate reporting of an emergency disease increases thechance of effective response. Surveillance for the early detection of EADs requires veterinarians in thefield to be able to recognise the signs that point to a disease incursion. Lack of exposure of Australianveterinarians to EADs influences response times when these diseases emerge. In anticipation of suchevents, veterinarians should be trained and prepared to respond to outbreaks, minimizing its impactsand future-proofing Australia’s biosecurity.
