Animal health and welfare

How we can help

We enforce animal health and welfare legislation. We do this by inspecting all farms and other livestock premises to check the health and welfare of animals kept there.

Our work includes:

  • inspecting feed, fertilisers and animal movement records
  • supervision (when necessary) of cleaning and disinfection of livestock premises, vehicles and equipment
  • ensuring the proper disposal of certain animal carcasses
  • advice and assistance to farm businesses and other keepers of animals
  • issuing licences to operate pet shops, animal boarding and breeding establishments, riding establishments and zoos
