Multiple Western states/provinces have noticed increasing or at least occasional reports of eye disease in cervids. Of particular concern are those in moose. No single disease process or agent has been consistently identified; however, sampling strategies vary significantly. A simple standardized protocol for sampling is provided to help field staff, to guide decisions in the laboratory, and allow for comparisons across the West. This protocol is meant to be a guide to help wildlife health professionals prioritize sampling and test requests for abnormal eye cases in cervids.
