EVH-1 Confirmed In Brown County

May 2, 2014, 2:58 PM

EVH-1 Confirmed In Brown County

The Equine Herpesvirus, or EHV-1, has been confirmed in Brown County.

A five-year-old quarterhorse became ill with neurologic signs, including incoordination and difficulty walking. The horse is being treated by a local vet.

The virus is not uncommon in the horse population and results in respiratory disease, abortion and neurologic disease.

Vaccination and biosecurity are two preventative measures.

EHV-1 is a contagious disease that's spread among horses through direct contact or contaminated objects like buckets, brushes, tack, hay racks, etc.

Horses that have been vaccinated less than seven days or greater than 90 days before events have a higher risk of spreading the disease.

The virus is not a threat to humans. For additional information, visit the AIB Website.
