Vesicular Stomatitis Continues to Be Active in Texas and Colorado- State Vet Rod Hall Offers Update

Thu, 21 Aug 2014 06:33:24 CDT

Vesicular Stomatitis Continues to Be Active in Texas and Colorado- State Vet Rod Hall Offers Update Oklahoma State Veterinarian Dr. Rod Hall with the the Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food & Forestry has released a statement on the latest numbers from Colorado and Texas regarding Vesicular Stomatitis, which is being reported in both horses and cattle this summer. Here is the update from Dr. Hall:

"The updated VSV situation report reflects that fifty-five (55) new VSV-positive premises have been identified (53 in Colorado, 2 in Texas) since the last situation report (8/13/14).   

"The situation report will be posted to the APHIS website later today and can be accessed publicly, along with other VSV materials, by clicking here.

"We received some photos from Texas Animal Health Officials yesterday. Some are pretty serious looking and others are lesions that are in no way remarkable. The photos from a cow look like something I probably would have thought might be Bluetongue or some type of mild photosensitivity when I was in practice. Iíll try to get them posted on our website later today, and if Iím able to Iíll send another email with the link.

"We had a case reported to us Tuesday and we are investigating it. We donít think it is going to be VS, but the only way we know is to investigate and send samples for confirmation. Please let us know if you see anything that looks suspicious.
