What is biosecurity?
Biosecurity is a set of preventive measures designed to reduce the spread of infectious diseases. This includes procedures such as surveillance, isolation and quarantine, movement restrictions, avoidance of potentially contaminated areas, reduction of animal contact, cleaning and disinfection, and improving greyhound health through treatment and vaccination.
What is my role in biosecurity?
Greyhound trainers, breeders and owners have a role in almost every aspect of biosecurity including: 1. Surveillance
2. Isolation and Quarantine
3. Cleaning and disinfection
4. Protection of at risk greyhounds
What is Canine Coronavirus?
Gastroenteritis, caused by Canine Coronavirus, is inflammation in the stomach and intestine, which are characterised by symptoms including vomiting and diarrhoea. These infections are contagious and can spread rapidly around greyhound kennels. Young dogs are most at risk of infection and developing serious illness.
