CONTEXTE

WHAT THE CWHC IS DOING

The CWHC conducts scanning surveillance for mycoplasmosis across Canada through post mortem examinations of species affected by the disease exhibiting symptoms suggesting presence of the disease. Such surveillance is important to identifying incidents in order to inform practioners and managers so that the appropriate strategies may be employed to limit or prevent further transmission of the disease.

NOTRE CONTRIBUTION

Le RCSF effectue une surveillance par balayage de la mycoplasmose au Canada en procédant à des examens post mortem sur les animaux des espèces vulnérables qui présentent des symptômes de la maladie. Une telle surveillance est importante pour détecter les incidents et avertir les praticiens et les gestionnaires en temps opportun. Ceux-ci peuvent ainsi adopter et mettre en œuvre les mesures appropriées pour limiter ou prévenir une propagation ultérieure de la maladie.
