COVID-19 Updates: State of public health emergency declared.


Having strong animal health policy and practices is important to Alberta's domestic and wild animals. It also helps protect public health, the environment and the agriculture industry. The Office of the Chief Provincial Veterinarian (OCPV) works closely with other provinces, levels of government and industry on animal disease prevention and control. This includes monitoring diseases declared in the Animal Health Act as provincially reportable or notifiable.

For each livestock disease covered in this section, read about:

  • clinical signs
  • transmission and spread
  • risk to humans
  • prevention and control
  • how to report it

Also find out which animal diseases are provincially regulated, how they’re monitored and how many cases of affected farmed animals are confirmed each year in Alberta.
