This Council recommends and encourages programs designed to prevent, control, and eradicate animal diseases with the participation of local practitioners. The Council also studies problems of zoonotic diseases and of production, processing, and distribution of foods of animal origin as they relate to ensuring an adequate food supply that is clean, sound, wholesome, and free from adulteration.
Examples of Council activity include cooperative efforts with the USDA APHIS to develop a new national veterinary accreditation program; assisting in publication of the new, 3rd edition of Zoonosis updates; and addressing threats of foreign animal diseases and bioterrorism.
