FMD Factsheet - Sheep, Goats & Cattle

Know the signs of Foot and mouth disease (FMD) and what to look out for in your cloven-hoofed animals, and who to contact if you spot anything unusual.

  • Cattle, sheep and goats may show fever, be drooling and will be reluctant to move.
  • These animals can suffer from blisters on the mouth, muzzle, tongue, lips or between and above the hooves on the feet.
  • Blisters may be intact or ruptured, exposing raw tissue which is very painful. 

Report any signs of the disease observed in your cloven-hoofed animals immediately to the Emergency Animal Disease Watch Hotline on 1800 675 888 or to your local veterinarian.
