Three decades of approaches used in veterinary economics were reviewed to identify the most common errors made in this discipline. Five of the most common problems producing these errors were identified as: infectious disease implications, repeated measures bias, time horizon limitation problem in decision analysis, disease transmission projections in benefit-cost analysis, and simultaneous equation bias. Potential errors and biases resulting from ignoring these problems were illustrated through presentation of examples. Alternative methods which would eliminate or reduce such errors or biases were discussed.
