Animal Health Alert Network (AHAN)

 The Veterinary Public Health Program set up an Animal Health Alert Network (AHAN) in an effort to keep veterinarians, RVTs and animal health workers informed about local animal disease concerns, outbreaks, unusual diseases, and other opportunities to participate in public health initiatives. 

 

Veterinarians, veterinary technicians, animal control staff, wildlife rehabilitators and others that may work in an animal health field in our local area are invited to register and receive these alerts and updates.
