#BrakesonBrucellosis-Prevention for the Veterinarian and Para-Veterinarian
Veterinarians or para-veterinary professionals should take the necessary precautions when handling any animal that may potentially be infected with Brucellosis, e.g. a cow from a positive or unknown status herd that has aborted or that requires calving assistance. Wearing the correct personal protective equipment (PPE) including shoulder-length disposable plastic gloves, waterproof aprons, gumboots as well as approved surgical masks and goggles. Dispose of all biological and contaminated waste safely and be sure to wash and disinfect any contaminated surfaces, equipment and clothing.
