Scrapie - Advisory Notes for Farmers (PB9446)

How can I tell whether these clinical signs are caused by scrapie or another disease?

When a combination of the signs on Clinical signs of scrapie section has been noticed, it is possible your animal has scrapie. You or your vet must report the suspicion to the Divisional Veterinary Manager (DVM) at your local Animal Health Divisional Office. A Veterinary Officer will visit (free of charge) to examine the suspect animal. IF IN DOUBT, CALL US OUT. WE WOULD RATHER VISIT A CASE WHICH TURNS OUT NOT TO BE SCRAPIE THAN MISS A GENUINE CASE.
