STATE VETERINARIAN'S OFFICE EHV-1 Update

Sent: Wednesday, May 21, 2014 4:31 PM

EHV-1 update as of 5/21/14:
There are no new EHV-1 affected premises in Colorado. The quarantine is still in place at the affected stable in Rio Grande County. The Colorado Department of Agriculture has been notified that the second horse on the original EHV-1 premises that was considered a suspect case has now tested positive for EHV-1. Testing revealed that it was the wild-type virus. The horse is being monitored and under quarantine with no signs of neurological disease at this time.

No additional movement restrictions have been put in place for horses moving into or within Colorado. Horses moving into Colorado are required to have a certificate of veterinary inspection / health certificate issued within the last 30 days and a negative Equine Infectious Anemia test (Coggins Test) within 1 year. Specific horse events may require more recent health certificates and other requirements, so participants are encouraged to contact the event manager prior to leaving for equine events to get updated entry requirements.

Horse owners who have questions about any horses that are showing suspicious clinical signs should contact their veterinarian. Veterinarians should contact the State Veterinarian's Office if clinical signs are suggestive of EHV or if EHV is confirmed in any of their client's horses.

Equine event organizers and horse owners should remain vigilant, use good disease prevention practices, and watch for any unusual clinical signs in their horses.
