Wyoming Regional Veterinary Public Health Coordinators

 

 

Regional Veterinarian Coordinators, County Veterinarians,

and the Wyoming Veterinary Reserve Corps

 

The Regional Veterinary Coordinators (RVCs) work as volunteers in their seven regions to report zoonotic diseases and other adverse health events in animals that could impact public health. The reporting of confirmed or suspected animal cases involving a potential agent of bioterrorism is strongly encouraged. Other adverse health events reported thorough the surveillance system include environmental exposures, poisonings, undiagnosed illness syndromes, wild animal die-offs, and injuries. Information collected by the RVCs is reported to the state public health veterinarian and staff who compile this information into weekly, monthly and yearly summaries. The summaries are widely distributed throughout the state and are also available at http://wdh.state.wy.us/sho/hazards/wrvc.html.

 

From January of 2008 through December of 2012, a total of 5,119 reports were received through the surveillance program. An average of 33 entities reported information each week. Reporting entities can include but is not limited to: veterinary clinics, laboratories, animal control or law enforcement agencies, physicians and other healthcare providers. A majority (3288; 64%) of the reports involved animal bites and other potential rabies exposures to humans. Also commonly reported were animal cases (and human cases where an animal was the likely source) of campylobacter (263; 5%) and salmonella (126; 2.5%). Cases of giardia (128; 2.5%) and other internal zoonotic parasites (180; 3.5%) in animals were also reported. Reports of confirmed or suspected animal cases involving a potential bioterrorism agent included cases of anthrax (cattle, horse, moose), plague (bobcats, cats, coyotes, dogs, mountain lions, rabbits), brucellosis (cattle, dogs, elk, sheep), botulism (dog, horse, pheasants), Q fever (goats, sheep), and tularemia (beaver, bobcat, cats, rabbits).

 

County Veterinarians, as well as the RVCs, work as volunteers to help coordinate local planning for animal disasters where there may be public health implications. Some of the recent preparedness activities have included helping a county develop plans for a mobile animal rescue and shelter system. The Wyoming Veterinary Reserve Corps includes RVCs, County Veterinarians and other volunteer veterinarians. The Corps can be called upon to assist in a disaster response where there is animal involvement. There are currently 55 veterinarians in the Wyoming Veterinary Reserve Corps.
