Animal health and welfare - livestock

Trading standards is responsible for the enforcement of animal health and welfare legislation. This is designed to:

  • Protect the welfare of livestock on farms, at markets and during transportation:

  • Prevent the outbreak and spread of animal disease

  • Ensure the proper disposal of animal by-products

  • Prevent the illegal importation of mammals with the potential to bring rabies into the country

For the most up to date information about food and agriculture issues please check the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs website using the link below.

The Animal Welfare Officer based in Environmental Health carries out a range of animal related services working closely with Warren Avenue Kennels.
