Oklahoma Keeps Import Restrictions in Place with Vesicular Stomatitis Cases in Seven States

Fri, 18 Sep 2015 07:04:39 CDT

Oklahoma Keeps Import Restrictions in Place with Vesicular Stomatitis Cases in Seven States Oklahoma continues to have import restrictions in place over concerns for Vesicular Stomatitis, even though the state has not had a case this year. The U.S. Department of Agriculture's Animal Plant Health Inspection Service currently has 90 affected premises under quarantine in seven states, including Arizona, Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming. Since last week, 29 new Vesicular Stomatitis virus cases were identified and quarantined.

Restrictions remain in place for livestock entering Oklahoma, where Vesicular Stomatitis has been diagnosed in the last 30 days or in a county that contains a premise quarantined for Vesicular Stomatitis. State Veterinarian Dr. Rod Hall said the state requires horses or other livestock to have a health certificate within five days, rather than the normal 30 days and the veterinarian that writes the health certificate for that animal to come into Oklahoma must provide a statement that the animal was not from a premises where Vesicular Stomatitis has been diagnosed. The animal has to be examined by a veterinarian and the animal must be free of any lesions.

Vesicular Stomatitis symptoms include an animal not wanting to eat, drooling, blisters or ulcers in or around the mouth. Vesicular Stomatitis can also cause soreness or lameness in the feet and cows can get lesions on their teats.

Since the start of the outbreak, 446 Vesicular Stomatitis virus-affected premises have been identified and quarantined in eight states.

The states and their counties that are currently affected include:

Arizona: Apache

Colorado: Archuleta, Conejos, Delta, Douglas, Jefferson, Larimer, Mesa, Ouray, Rio Grande, Routt, Weld

Nebraska: Scotts Bluff

New Mexico: San Juan, San Miguel

South Dakota: Custer, Fall River, Lawrence, Meade, Pennington

Utah: Duchesne, Grand, San Juan, Uinta

Wyoming: Albany, Converse, Fremont, Goshen, Platte, Weston
