Zoonotic emergent infectious diseases have become one of the most serious threats for public
health. Approximately 75 % of the diseases that have occurred during the last two decades
originated in the wild fauna. SARS, West Nile virus or influenza recent epidemics, that will be
treated in this article, show the importance of emerging diseases in the whole world and the relevant
role of the veterinary services. Monitoring these diseases requires a multidisciplinary work team,
with professionals formed in medicine, epidemiology, virology, zoology and veterinary sciences,
because of the great interrelationship of factors. Likewise, it is always important to bear all the
routes of transmission in mind in these very contagious diseases, not only animals, but the
commercial, both legal and illegal, movements
