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 2017. The publication also describes the measures taken to prevent and combat animal diseases. The animal disease situation remained good overall, but new diseases were also detected. Outbreaks of highly pathogenic avian influenza H5N8 amongst wild birds continued to occur during springtime. At the end of the year a highly contagious fish disease IHN was detected in four rainbow trout holdings. One Brant’s bat was found positive of bat rabies caused by a new type of lyssavirus. New cases of salmonella were found on 18 farms and Mycoplasma bovis infections were again found in dairy 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, avian influenza and rabies and was tested in a joint simulation exercise with the Nordic and Baltic countries.
