Reportable and notifiable livestock diseases

Under The Animal Health Act, provincially reportable diseases are those that require action be taken for prevention, control or eradication of the disease. Saskatchewan currently responds to outbreaks of anthrax, chronic wasting disease and rabies.

In contrast, notifiable diseases are those that require monitoring for trade purposes, or to help the industry detect or understand their presence in Saskatchewan. In most cases, no action is taken in response to the confirmation of a provincially notifiable disease, although further action may be taken at the discretion of the provincial chief veterinary officer.

Anyone who knows or ought to know that a reportable or notifiable disease is confirmed to be present in an animal must report it within 24 hours to the office of the Chief Veterinary Officer.
