Emergency and notifiable animal diseases

  • Emergency animal diseases
    can have serious consequences for trade, production or human health. Contact a vet or call the Emergency Animal Disease Hotline on 1800 675 888 if you see symptoms or deaths in animals that may be due to an emergency animal disease.
  • Notifiable animal diseases in NSW
    A number of animal diseases, including all emergency animal diseases, are notifiable under NSW legislation. This means there's a legal obligation to notify authorities if you know or suspect that an animal has one of these diseases.
  • You may notify a suspected or confirmed non emergency animal disease using the online form or fill in the notifiable animal disease form and fax it to NSW DPI Biosecurity on 02 6361 9976.
