Moredun's Disease Surveillance experts, in partnership with the Scottish Agricultural College's Veterinary Services, provide a specialist service to diagnose, monitor and horizon scan for livestock diseases in Scotland. Activity is focused within the Virus Surveillance Unit and in the Pathology laboratory which undertakes specialist histopathological surveillance of neuropathological and reproductive conditions of farm animals (and sea mammals such as whales, dolphins, porpoises and seals) for the whole of Scotland.

The diagnosis of disease can be a complex and arduous job, requiring highly trained and experienced individuals. It is mystery solving at its most extreme and the staff within the Surveillance Unit frequently encounter many unusual cases including new and emerging diseases.
