Protecting the Health of Livestock and Poultry

The Division of Animal Health is charged with protecting and promoting the health of Ohio's livestock and poultry industries. Responsibilities include livestock and poultry testing and inspection, licensing, controlling animal diseases in Ohio, and providing veterinary diagnostic laboratory services. In addition, the division is responsible for supervision of the exhibition livestock testing. The division cooperates with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to investigate drug residue violation cases, which further protects consumers. In 1995, the ODA Animal Disease Diagnostic Laboratory (ADDL) received accreditation by the American Association of Veterinary Laboratory Diagnosticians (AAVLD). The ADDL joined a prestigious national network of 36 laboratories in the United States carrying the designation. The laboratory provides credible results, which assist veterinarians and producers in herd health management and enhance the global marketability of Ohio's livestock.
