Scottish Vet Fair: Economics in Animal Health - Prof. Alistair Stott

Alistair Stott draws on his experience to illustrate applications in practice

Animal health economics is often assumed to be about the financial implications of disease in livestock or other animals. Costs of prevention and control are weighed up against expected future losses in order to support the decisions of vets, farmers and policy makers. However, simply converting the physical implications of current epidemiology and practice into financial figures is not enough. What matters are the relationships between alternative actions and their outcomes. How should the vet and client re-allocate their time, money, tools, information etc. among often competing actions in order to gain the maximum improvement on current practice?
