This chapter examines the geographies of veterinary experts and expertise in the management of global animal disease. First, the chapter analyses the geographical origins and mobilities of disease management practices, focusing on the current trend of governments working in partnership with farmers to resolve animal disease outbreaks. These approaches are shown to have geographically unique origins and distinct reasons for moving from country to country to counter the threat of disease. Second, focusing on the use of diagnostics in disease management, the chapter reveals the spatialities of the different materials techniques and practices used to control disease. Transgressing the boundaries of these practices may help to create more acceptable disease control policies. Finally, the chapter describes how narratives of veterinary subjectivity contribute to the global circulation of vets and its consequences for disease control and biosecurity.
