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.
