Vesicular Stomatitis Continues to Spread - Livestock Producers and Veterinarians on High Alert

Fri, 26 Jul 2019 11:37:20 CDT

Vesicular Stomatitis Continues to Spread - Livestock Producers and Veterinarians on High Alert Vesicular Stomatitis continues to spread, according to Oklahoma State Veterinarian Dr. Rod Hall. In addition to over 200 affected premises in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado, Wyoming has now reported a case identified just a couple of days ago. Dr. Hall says the disease is “knocking on Oklahoma’s door” with nearest case of VSV in Wichita Falls, Texas. Hall’s office is requesting that everyone continues to be alert and report any suspicious or potential symptoms.


VSV is seen in horses more often than other livestock but in cloven hoofed animals it mimics Foot and Mouth Disease. Livestock owners should be vigilant in looking for symptoms in cloven hoofed livestock as well as in horses.


The situation report has tables that list the Counties that have cases in each affected state as well as maps with affected Counties highlighted.


More information about the disease can be found here.


Hall also asks that stakeholders be aware of the rules concerning this situation, as follows.


“Our rules say: Livestock or horses traveling from a County that has had VSV diagnosed within the past 30 days (30) days or a county that contains a premises quarantined for vesicular stomatitis shall be accompanied by a certificate of veterinary inspection dated within five (5) days of entry containing the following statement: ‘All animals identified on this certificate of veterinary inspection have been examined and found to be free from signs of vesicular stomatitis and have not originated from a premise which is under quarantine for vesicular stomatitis.’”


You can find a copy of the VSV Rule here.
