Does anyone have a current authoritative reference list of Notifiable diseases affecting deer in the UK?

I have a list, but it's not current -
  1. Anthrax
  2. Aujeszky's Disease
  3. Bluetongue
  4. Epizootic Haemorrhagic Virus Disease
  5. Foot and Mouth Disease
  6. Rabies
  7. Tuberculosis (Bovine TB)
  8. Chronic Wasting Disease
Thanks

i think you are right

Thanks very much, at some point I acquired a spreadsheet of diseases and it references -
(i) Management & Diseases of Deer, Second Edition 1994
(ii) BDS Training Manual Sept 2006"
I had expected there to be something more current out there.
Best regards

IN fairness, I doubt I'd be able to diagnose Aujesky's or Rabies!
JCS - I was going to comment saracstically that at least it was in the same century, however, you make a good point. It is worth this list being updated, even if it doesn't change.

I thought Brucellosis was also on the list, but I doubt if I'd be able to diagnose that as well.

Don't know if it will help, but just checked in Blacks Veterinary Dictionary and there are fifty Notifiable Diseases listed in the UK. ( albeit 11 relate to fish etc ) some are Not even notifiable in other European States.:tiphat:
