Animal health professionals have inherently high risks of exposure to zoonotic diseases. They are likely to be amongst the first people to encounter animals infected with zoonotic pathogens and to engage in high-risk interactions with them. This study was conducted to determine the perceptions of zoonotic diseases risk among Australian veterinarians, the infection control practices they use to protect themselves from zoonotic diseases, and the drivers influencing these perceptions, attitudes and practices.
