Foot and Mouth Disease (FMD)

 
 

Foot and mouth disease (FMD) is a contagious virus that can spread rapidly among cloven-hoofed livestock and wildlife populations. Its economic impact can be felt directly, in the form of lost milk production and dramatically reduced performance in affected herds, as well as indirectly, in terms of foregone revenue and additional costs driven by the need for vaccines.1 The IDEXX FMD Multispecies Ab Test helps laboratories, governments, veterinarians, and farmers manage the threat of this highly contagious disease.
