Tuberculosis (TB) can be difficult to recognise owing to its diverse pathology and similar gross pathology to other conditions. Early detection of TB outbreaks goes a long way to preventing further spread of the disease. This article describes the spectrum of possible gross pathology of TB in a range of non-bovine farmed species for which there is no routine antemortem surveillance. For these species, detection of the disease is dependent on gross pathology at slaughter or postmortem examination findings.
