Parasites and Disease

Welcome to the Real-Time Pet Disease Reporting Site

Prevention, early detection and timely response are key when dealing with emerging infectious diseases affecting animals and humans alike.

The Real-Time Pet Disease Reporting website has been designed to offer the Canadian public and the veterinary healthcare profession timely, searchable data, helping to assess the potential risks of infectious diseases. By consistently recording and sharing their test results on this site, Canadian veterinary practices become part of a reporting network of significant infectious diseases within their community. As a result, with current and accurate information, veterinarians can better develop a strategy to protect the well-being of their patients, their clients and their community

Additionally, this site offers animal healthcare professionals and pet owners valuable information about the diseases being tracked.

Veterinarians are encouraged to register and regularly report their test results on the Real-Time Pet Disease Reporting website.
