As Vesicular Stomatitis Continues to Spread, Intrastate Requirements are Instituted

Tue, 28 Jul 2020 15:38:44 CDT

As Vesicular Stomatitis Continues to Spread, Intrastate Requirements are Instituted As Vesicular Stomatitis continues to spread, State Veterinarian Dr. Rod Hall offers these comments, "Vesicular Stomatitis is continuing to spread. We now have cases in Washington, Craig, Osage, Ottawa, Tulsa, Nowata, Adair, and Rogers Counties. Please pay particular attention and be on the alert for suspect cases and continue to report them to us.

Because of the outbreak we have instituted Intrastate requirements for CVIs for livestock moving from Counties with confirmed positive cases. This includes livestock exhibitions, rodeos, County Fairs, private treaty sales, livestock auctions, and any other commingling of livestock. Those livestock must have a CVI and examination by a veterinarian within 5 days of the movement with this statement on it: "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." Our hope is that by having veterinarians inspect susceptible livestock closer to the movement we can prevent as much spread of the disease in hopes that the outbreak will end more quickly and we can minimize another outbreak next year."

You can see the latest report below.

You can get a lot of information about the disease here: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/aphis/ourfocus/animalhealth/animal-disease-information/equine/vsv/vesicular-stomatitis .   If any links give an error message please look in the address line and remove any "noclick_" and hit enter.

You can read the latest USDA Situation Report here: https://www.aphis.usda.gov/animal_health/downloads/animal_diseases/vsv/sitrep-07-13-20.pdf

Please make your clients aware that 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."
