Equine Herpesvirus EHV-1 Alerts 

Please keep checking back, as we will be posting updates as we receive them.

 

There have been several cases of Equine Herpesvirus (EHV-1) in horses from surrounding states that returned from the National Cutting Horse Association’s Western National Championships (NCHA) that was held at the Golden Spike Event Center in Ogden, Utah from April 29 to May 8th.

Confirmed and suspected cases have been found in Utah, Colorado, Idaho and other states. This disease is infectious and has resulted in some secondary cases. 

This is a severe, neurological strain of EHV-1. EHV-1 can cause a wide range of symptoms, from a complete lack of clinical signs to fever, nasal discharge, incoordination, hind-end weakness, lethargy, urine dribbling and diminished tail tone. It also can cause acute paralytic syndrome, which results in high mortality. The virus is easily spread by airborne transmission, horse-to-horse contact and by contact with nasal secretions on equipment, tack, feed and other surfaces. People can spread the virus to horses by means of contaminated hands, clothing, shoes and vehicles.

 

This disease is not a risk to humans.
