We work with Animal Health, Defra and other partners to ensure readiness for any suspected animal disease in Warwickshire. Livestock keepers must remain vigilant for signs of disease, no matter where in the country they are. Any signs of disease must be reported to the local Defra Animal Health office without delay. Livestock keepers have a vital frontline role in detecting disease and in helping control and eradicated it. Everybody must take full responsibility for ensuring stringent biosecurity and compliance with movement restrictions. Warwickshire businesses wishing to make an animal health or animal health licensing enquiry should contact the Animal Health Licensing Team.
