More Cases of Vesicular Stomatitis Confirmed in Neighboring States, State Vet Puts Producers on Alert

Tue, 09 Jul 2019 11:18:39 CDT

More Cases of Vesicular Stomatitis Confirmed in Neighboring States, State Vet Puts Producers on Alert Vesicular Stomatitis continues to spread, according to a follow-up release from Oklahoma State Veterinarian Dr. Rod Hall issued Tuesday morning. Apparently, it has been confirmed that new premises and new counties in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado have now been affected. The State Veterinarian’s Office first alerted the public about the spread of the disease last week. Both horses and livestock are susceptible to this viral disease.


Stakeholders are asked to please be aware that horses and livestock traveling to affected counties will need to be examined by a veterinarian and have a Certificate of Veterinary Inspection within five days of returning to Oklahoma. Horses and livestock being imported into Oklahoma must meet the same requirements.


Dr. Hall explained in today’s alert that any livestock (equine, bovine, porcine, caprine, ovine, or cervidae) entering Oklahoma from a county where vesicular stomatitis has been diagnosed within the last thirty (30) days or a county that contains a premises quarantined for vesicular stomatitis shall be required to acquire a CVI dated within five (5) days of entry. In addition, the CVI should contain 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."
