Transmissible Diseases Handbook
Share |

The fourth edition of the Transmissible Diseases Handbook, compiled by EAZWV's Infectious Diseases Working Group (IDWG) was published in February 2010. It has been made available to EAZA, the authorities of SANCO in Brussels, members of the EU Animal Health Strategy Committee, the CVOs (Central Veterinary Officers) of all 27 EU Member States and the OIE.

Putting efforts into the creation of a reference manual published under the umbrella of our Association is an important step in the process of European standardization, and should provide a useful tool for zoo practitioners, zoo managers and European legislative authorities dealing with wildlife and zoo animals.

The handbook summarises information on various diseases: susceptible animals, zoonotic potential, clinical symptoms, pathology, diagnostic methods, qualified laboratories, treatment, prevention, experts who may be consulted, legislation (especially European laws) and relevant literature. From this page you can download the individual chapters of the handbook, the relevant European decisions, directives and regulations and 133 fact sheets in a standardised format.
