Infection Control and Prevention

Infection control and disease prevention between animals or to people requires awareness of how exposure happens, biosecurity steps to stop spread, using disinfectants appropriately, and communicating through signs ways to protect themselves.

Disease Exposure Routes

Vector Borne

Disease causing agents can be spread from animal-to-animal and between animals and humans through a variety of transmission routes. 


Biosecurity steps can help keep animals and people from being exposed to disease-causing organisms.



Disinfection, when done correctly, can reduce disease-causing organisms and is an important part of any biosecurity plan.
