It is, however, cumbersome to manually monitor animal health. It is often difficult to detect health issues in animals and by the time an issue is detected, it is often already too late to get adequate healthcare to reverse the illness. This can not only lead to high healthcare and maintenance costs for farmers but also cause suffering in animals. This situation only worsens when there is no easy access to quality healthcare professionals and infrastructure. A dire financial situation of farmers coupled with inaccessibility to quality healthcare could lead to abandoning of sick livestock causing further suffering in the animals.
Animal diseases can pose a risk not only to such affected animals but also to public health. It could also impact businesses and the economy at large. These issues make an efficient animal health tracking and monitoring system imperative in preventing animal diseases.
