Compendium of Veterinary Standard Precautions for Zoonotic Disease Prevention in Veterinary Personnel

The National Association of State Public Health Veterinarians Veterinary Infection Control Committee has published the Compendium of Veterinary Standard Precautions for Zoonotic Disease Prevention in Veterinary Personnel PDF.

The VSP outlined in this Compendium are routine infection control practices designed to minimize transmission of zoonotic pathogens from animal patients to veterinary personnel in private practice. The Compendium was first published in 2008 in response to a growing recognition of the occupational risks inherent in veterinary practice and the need for infection control guidance for veterinarians.
