Animal disease reports are essential for identifying outbreaks, disease trends, and new diseases. This information is used to educate veterinarians, physicians, and others to help protect the health of animals and people. REPORTING SICK OR DEAD BIRDS for possible AVIAN INFLUENZA TESTING, as of 1/24/2024: Report the bird to your local animal control agency. They might be able to collect and hold it for HPAI testing. Waterfowl, shorebirds and medium or large birds are the best types of birds to test for HPAI. Please also complete this reporting form below to notify us. Be sure to include information on how to contact you, and let us know if Animal Control is planning to collect the bird. Never touch a sick or dead bird without wearing personal protective equipment.
