As Vesicular Stomatitis Continues to Spread, State Veterinarian Rod Hall Encourages Producers to Stay Alert As Vesicular Stomatitis is continuing to spread. State Veterinarian Dr. Rod Hall offers these comments, "We have confirmed the disease in Washington County and are investigating very suspicious cases in Osage, Craig, and Ottawa Counties and it has been confirmed in far southwestern Missouri. Please pay particular attention and be on the alert for suspect cases and continue to report them to us. 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."
