Veterinary Investigation Diagnosis Analysis (VIDA) report

Annual report on data recorded by APHA and Scotland's Rural College on animal diagnostic submissions in Great Britain.

The Veterinary Investigation Diagnosis Analysis (VIDA) database holds records of animal and bird diagnoses by the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) laboratories, its partner PME providers and Scotland’s Rural College (SRUC) in Great Britain.

The VIDA report is published annually and shows monthly data by diagnosis for the year of the report, plus annual totals for the year of the report and previous years.
