Western Canadian Animal Health Network

WeCAHN is an animal health surveillance and intelligence network, detecting and sharing animal disease trends and best practices with livestock producers, pet owners, and veterinarians, improving animal health and welfare in western Canada.

WeCAHN is a "network of networks"

WeCAHN is composed of species-specific networks, each performing surveillance and intelligence-gathering in their respective sectors. The core activity of each species network is the quarterly meeting of experts, discussing animal health data and events of the preceding three months. The experts consist of veterinary practitioners, laboratory scientists, epidemiologists, researchers, and industry representatives. All contribute data to the discussion, identifying disease trends and sharing best practices.
