Veterinarian Resources

​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Reportable or notifiable diseases and conditions are required by law to be reported by veterinarians. These diseases can have severe consequences to livestock or companion animals, create significant economic impacts, or pose zoonotic risk. Reporting these diseases is important to quickly identify and control disease outbreaks. 

In Oregon, OAR 603-011-0212 outlines the complete list of diseases of interest to the state and details the authority of the State Veterinarian to request reports on disease of concern associated with overall disease control measures. Rules governing vaccinations and reporting of listed livestock diseases can be found at ORS 596.321.  Duties of the State Department of Agriculture in protection of people and livestock can be found at ORS 596.020. ​
