Data source: 

Both secondary and primary data collection can be used according to context.
- Baseline/Endline. If multiyear programme depending on comparison requirements between lean season and other seasons, consider an interim reporting/evaluation;
- Secondary data. Reliable/relevant sources from other actors, clusters or government.

Data Collection methods:
Secondary data analysis;
Households Survey, Focus Group Discussions;
Veterinary books;
Ministry census

Measurement Guidance: 

> Number people using paravet/vet services relative to baseline
> Number of animals treated (by type) relative to baseline

- Needs to consider potential changes in seasonal presence of animals and prevalence of diseases, hence need for treatment and services
- Proportional piling/ranking are useful methods to establish changes in priority treatment etc.
