Foot-and-mouth disease (FMD) is a highly-contagious viral disease which affects cloven hoofed (with two toes) animals including sheep, cattle, pigs, goats, llamas, alpacas and deer. It typically starts as a fever, followed by the appearance of blisters, mainly in the mouth and on the feet. It is very infectious and can spread from one animal to another by breathing and by saliva, mucous, milk and faeces. FMD does not affect humans or other animals such as horses, dogs, cats and birds. current 28 October 2014
