The Veterinary Handbook for cattle, sheep and goats


The Livestock Export Program (LEP) has developed a Veterinary Handbook app for the diagnosis and treatment of livestock animals, which is now available for download.

The Veterinary Handbook app is a mobile phone/tablet resource that includes information on the diagnosis, treatment, prevention and associated syndromes of diseases in cattle, sheep and goats.

The app allows users to search by species, disease or syndrome to instantly access veterinarian advice.

The app operates offline and does not require wifi access, making access possible in the field at any time.

Support for the Veterinary Handbook app

The Veterinary Handbook app has already received strong domestic and international support since its launch by the Minister for Agriculture in May 2014.

Hon Barnaby Joyce MP: "The development of this app demonstrates that the meat and livestock sector is committed to the health and well-being of their animals."

The app has also received strong support from the World Organisation of Animal Health (OIE).

Director General Dr Bernard Vallat: “OIE congratulates the Australian livestock industries for this initiative to further assure the health and welfare of livestock during transport to their export market destinations. This app provides stockmen and women with easy access to information that will enable their early recognition of any emerging animal health or welfare problem…which is vital for effective animal health and welfare management and control.
