Abstract: This publication contains information on the incidence of animal diseases to be combated and the prevalence of certain other infections in various animal species in Finland in 2018. The publication also describes the measures taken to prevent and combat animal diseases. The animal disease situation remained overall good. However, the IHN epidemic that started in 2017, continued during 2018. The first case of TSE in cervids in Finland was found in February 2018. Outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N6 amongst wild birds occurred during springtime. New cases of salmonella were found on 36 farms. Finland remained free of strategically important animal diseases such as enzootic bovine leucosis, brucellosis and bovine tuberculosis, IBR and BVD infections, PRRS infections in swine and Echinococcus multilocularis infection. The preparedness was especially targeted at combating African swine fever, IHN and CWD.
