Consumer Services – Animal health, welfare and protection

Animal health, welfare and protection

The service, working in partnership with the Welsh Assembly Government (WAG) and the Department for Environment, Food & Rural Affairs, (DEFRA), is responsible for the enforcement of animal health and welfare legislation at the 520 agricultural and stockholding premises in Bridgend County Borough.

The importance of the service’s work in this area was highlighted by the major impact that the Foot and Mouth epidemic in 2001 had on the farming community and leisure industry in the United Kingdom and the county borough.

The legislation is aimed at minimising the effects and risk of transmissible diseases and infestations among livestock and domestic animals and ensuring that the welfare of animals is protected by avoiding pain and suffering of animals.

For advice please contact Public Protection.
