Optimum health is essential for the wellbeing and longevity of all animals.

It is the responsibility of animal owners or carers to ensure the welfare of the animals within their care are met. As part of the general care of animals, we need to be able to identify diseases. The first step in recognising diseases in animals is to understand when an animal is unwell. This generally requires a number of factors: information on the history of the animal, a physical health check, understanding the normal behaviour of the animal, observing the species and specialized testing to identify the cause of the illness.
