A few years ago, we launched WormsAndGermsMap to help track certain emerging and endemic diseases. Data are entered by participating veterinary clinics, surveillance programs and the WormsAndGerms team. While we certainly can’t capture every case, we do collect some interesting information about the presence of certain diseases.
Using the “Report Filter” bar on the left, you can filter by disease, animal species and date.
For those who haven’t visited the Map (yet!), here are some screen shots from a few selected diseases – check out the website for lots more! Clinics interested in participating by submitting cases for the map can register using the link at the top of the page.
Equine herpesvirus myeloencephalopthy (EHM)
