The convergence of people, animals, and their products embedded in a threatened environment has resulted in an unprecedented 21st-century mixing bowl. This convergence has created a new dynamic, one in which the health of three domains—animals, people, and the environment—is now profoundly and inextricably linked and elaborately woven together.
