Horse Owners Encouraged to be On Guard Against Equine Herpes Virus

Fri, 15 May 2015 13:33:21 CDT

Horse Owners Encouraged to be On Guard Against Equine Herpes Virus The State of Oklahoma is home to countless horse owners and many large national equine events. Due to the potentially serious consequences, news of an Equine Herpes Virus incident has caused questions and concerns throughout the equine industry.


Horse owners, event managers, and veterinarians should be aware of a recent case of Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1) that occurred at a reining horse event in Gordyville, IL. All exhibitors from that event have been notified and upcoming events at the Gordyville facility have been postponed. There are no related cases of EHV-1 in Oklahoma.


The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry (ODAFF) recommends horse owners and event managers remain at a heightened level of awareness, implement biosecurity practices to minimize potential exposure, consult with a veterinarian on an appropriate vaccination schedule, and report any suspicious illness or neurologic disease.


There have been no changes in import regulations and no recommended event cancellations issued by the ODAFF. Symptoms of EHV-1 infection are fever, nasal discharge, incoordination, hind limb weakness, urine dribbling, and a flaccid tail.
