Animal health is broadly defined as “the absence of disease or the normal functioning of an organism and normal behavior” (Ducrot et al., 2011). Animal health is one of the key factors of sustainability due to the importance of global animal protein lost to disease.
Animal health is also important to maintain a healthy environment for animals in order to produce healthy food products. Sustainability practices can help reduce the spread of diseases among animals and reduce antibiotics usage, which helps to combat antimicrobial resistance.
