Welcome to Animal Health, your reference Web for 16 years

We belong to the VISAVET Research Centre from the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM). We work in research and teaching on animal infectious diseases.

 
  • Queremos agradeceros todo el apoyo y fidelidad que nos habéis dado durante estos 16 años, estrenando nuevo diseño Web compatible con dispositivos móviles. A partir de septiembre habrá nuevas secciones. Os deseamos un feliz verano!
  • Somos Laboratorio de Referencia de la Organización Mundial de la Sanidad Animal (OIE) en Peste Porcina Africana (PPA) y Peste Equina Africana PEA.
  • Realizamos el diagnóstico de los principales virus que afectan a las abejas, siendo pioneros en el desarrollo y puesta a punto de nuevas técnicas para su estudio.
  • La investigación epidemiologica de la Peste Porcina Clásica y Africana (PPC y PPA) son dos de nuestras prioridades.
  • En SUAT trabajamos en la aplicación de la termografía a la sanidad animal, especialmente ventajosa en animales en libertad y de zoo.

X Modelling Week

X Modelling WeekWe engage with the X Modelling Week at the Faculty of CC. Mathematics of the UCM from 13 to 17 June 2016.

The proposed problem consists on developing a video analysis system in real time for early detection of diseases in farms. For this work, 8 animals were continuously recorded for 4 weeks. During this period, the animals developed African swine fever (ASF) and we could notice clear signs of fatigue (which implies a motion reduction). The system perform image processing techniques based on mathematical-statistical techniques in order to identify and classify animal behaviour in their various states: eating, playing, sleeping or resting. Furthermore, the system detects abnormal behavior when the infection reaches its virulence moments for alert triggering.
