Both CM and SCM causes substantial economic loss, another concern is the transient zoonotic spread from bovine to humans. The menace of SCM and CM as a zoonotic concern can be tackled through implementation of collaborative approach between producers, veterinarians, human and environmental professionals at different horizons by the concept of“ One Health”. This collaborative, multifactorial technological inovations will aid to detect potential health treats and prevents the zoonotic transmission caused by mastitis.
