Foreign animal diseases are those that are not currently in the U.S. Zoonotic diseases are those that are transferable between animals and humans. New farming methods, international trade, and the influx of people into rural areas and wildlife habitats contribute to the increase of on-farm zoonotic diseases and foreign animal diseases. Many of these diseases are treatable. However, in the case of goats, most treatments require the extra-label use of products under veterinary supervision.
