Amber’s love for animal agriculture started at a young age growing up on her family’s dairy farm in Pennsylvania. After leaving the farm, she earned her undergraduate degree at the Pennsylvania State University, her veterinary degree at the University of Pennsylvania, and later went on to earn a master’s degree in animal welfare from the University of British Columbia. Prior to joining WSDA as field veterinarian, she enjoyed 10 years in large animal practice. Dr. Amber Itle currently serves as your Washington State Veterinarian where she oversees the animal health and animal disease traceability programs in the Department of Agriculture.
|Reportable Diseases of Companion Animals and Farm Animals with Names
Washington has experienced a surge in small niche farms resulting in small animal practitioners being asked to expand their services beyond cats and dogs to include small ruminants, poultry and pot-bellied pigs. Come to this session to gain an understanding of your role as a practitioner in managing reportable and zoonotic disease cases in companion animals and common backyard farm animals. This interactive two-hour session will present an overview of the State Vets office, review companion animal disease trends in the state and address illegal importation through a case study format. Biosecurity and preventative measures for small animal practitioners will also be addressed.
