Brief Insight on Animal Disease
(32 Views)

Animal disease, an impairment of the normal
state of an animal that interrupts or
modifies its vital functions.
Concern with diseases that afflict animals
dates from the earliest human contacts with
animals and is reflected in early views of
religion and magic. Diseases of animals
remain a concern principally because of the
economic losses they cause and the possible
transmission of the causative agents to
humans. The branch of medicine called
veterinary medicine deals with the study,
prevention, and treatment of diseases not
only in domesticated animals but also in
wild animals and in animals used in
scientific research. The prevention, control,
and eradication of diseases of economically
important animals are agricultural concerns.
Programs for the control of diseases
communicable from animals to man, called
zoonoses, especially those in pets and in
wildlife, are closely related to human health.
Further, the diseases of animals are of
increasing importance, for a primary public-
health problem throughout the world is
animal-protein deficiency in the diet of
humans. Indeed, both the United Nations
Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO)
and the World Health Organization (WHO)
have been attempting to solve the problem
of protein deficits in a world whose human
population is rapidly expanding.
