Animals have always served as disease vectors for humans. While the threat is ancient, the focus on these diseases is emerging. Mammals, birds, reptiles and insects are known to carry these emerging infectious diseases. Zoonotic diseases are caused by infectious agents that can be transmitted between (or are shared by) animals and humans.


Veterinary Zoonotic Disease Reporting, Oregon

The Oregon Health Authority has consistently collected veterinary laboratory-reported zoonotic disease data in Oregon since 2011. With only a few years of data, we notice upward trends in some diseases. Some of these may be investigated as they may pose a threat to human health. Animal zoonotic disease data may also be an indicator of the health of the environment which may impact human health.
