Vesicular Stomatitis Concerning for Horse Owners

Vesicular Stomatitis Concerning for Horse Owners

The number of vesicular stomatitis virus cases infecting horses across the country continues to increase. Oklahoma State Veterinarian Dr. Rod Hall has issued a new report showing 23 new VSV-positive premises have been identified (20 in Colorado, 3 in Texas) since the last report was issued September 10th.

Hall said he appreciated the practitioners who have called and reported suspicious cases. He said so far we have encountered one suspicious serology result and we are waiting for virus isolation, but we believe it is an old titer and not a current infection. The practitioner on that case has reported that she received positive BVD results which can cause very similar symptoms to VS in cattle.

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.

The ODAFF web page with affected counties and increased Oklahoma regulations concerning VSV is available by clicking here.
