Incidence in cats and dogs

This shows the number of cats and dogs infected with tuberculosis in Great Britain in 2008 as recorded by DEFRA. Please note that due to the way in which DEFRA records such cases, actual numbers are likely to be substantially higher. Numbers shown below may serve to show the relative proportion of the disease in each species.

Under the Tuberculosis (England) Order 2007, farmed mammals or mammals kept as pets affected with, or suspected of being affected with, tuberculosis are notifiable to the Divisional Veterinary Manager (DVM) of the local Animal Health Divisional Office. Bovine TB in cats and dogs is a zoonosis (i.e. the disease can be spread from animal to human). See Reference 1 for more details.
