C.O. EHV-1 Update

Jun 28, 2022 | Education, News

More than three weeks have passed since the Oregon State Veterinarian reported the last confirmed case of equine herpesvirus-1 myeloencephalopathy in the state. At this time, we are cautiously optimistic and believe it’s safe to resume normal travel and activities with your horses. That said, we recommend continuing to be vigilant with your biosecurity measures. That means keeping your horse’s vaccinations up to date, avoiding nose-to-nose contact between horses, and monitoring and logging temperatures while traveling and at horse shows/events. Finally, isolate your horse and seek veterinary advice if he or she exhibits clinical signs associated with EHV-1, including fever, nasal discharge, coughing, lethargy, and in some cases ataxia (incoordination).
