Animals Page Banner

This section describes the services of the Chief Veterinary Office (CVO) in protecting animals, food and people. Contact the CVO if you need specialized veterinary advice or if you suspect animals are suffering or have disease.

The About the CVO section explains the role of the CVO, describes the programs and activities conducted by the CVO and the laws and regulations it supports.

Visit the Animal Welfare section to learn more about the Animal Welfare Program, and how you can report a concern on the poor treatment of animals - on the farm, in the home and in commercial breeding and boarding facilities.

In the Animal Health section, producers can link to information on disease control and surveillance conducted by the CVO. Also, you can find best practices for biosecurity and veterinary drug use. In the Livestock Industry Branch, you can find veterinary diagnostic services and extension and advisory services related to production, programs, policies and regulations.
The Emergency Preparedness page outlines how livestock producers and animal owners can plan for emergencies and evacuations before they occur. The Traceability section explains how industry and government work together to build systems that can track any animal health, natural disaster or food safety emergency back to the source for quick, effective action.
The Rural Veterinary Task Force page outlines the creation of a new task force in 2015 designed to determine how best to use funds invested each year to support sustainability, examine changing trends and review the current status of livestock and veterinary services provided to rural Manitoba.

September 26-28, 2016 International One Welfare Conference at the Radisson Hotel in Winnipeg.
The International One Welfare Conference is an opportunity for national and international subject matter experts as well as decision makers in the fields of human and animal health and welfare to learn from each other within the One Welfare framework. It will discuss the science, best practices, models and policies that have shown successes –or challenges— in managing complex issues, from hoarding involving animals through to on-farm animal welfare issues that relate to human outcomes such as mental health, ageing, and socioeconomic status.
