Better health through applied epidemiology


Ausvet improves the health and well-being of animals, people and plants. We find patterns of diseases in populations to understand their causes and to improve their control.

Real world solutions

We are committed to providing affordable, sustainable solutions which bring broad-based benefit. Our innovative people-centred approaches improve the lives of millions of people and animals all over the world.

Cross disciplinary

Our epidemiologists work closely with our in-house team of experts in development, sociology and information technology. Using a One Health framework allows us to deliver great results that reflect the complexity of real-world challenges.

Innovative science

Our staff are trained specialists with strong scientific backgrounds and many years of field experience. We combine practice and theory to provide innovative, affordable and fit-for-purpose solutions.

Excellence since 1996

Ausvet was founded in 1996 by Drs Chris Baldock (1947-2005) and David Kennedy as a private company dedicated to providing independent epidemiology services globally. Angus Cameron joined them in 1999.

Since that time, Ausvet has grown to be a vibrant company with multiple offices and several dozen staff but we still hold true to the standards of independence, quality and professionalism set by the company’s founders.
