The Tennessee Department of Agriculture confirmed a positive case of equine infectious anemia (EIA) in Shelby County on May 16.
The affected horse was a 5-year-old Quarter Horse gelding that was euthanized.
The Tennessee Department of Agriculture noted that the horse was in Tennessee for only two days before the EIA sample was drawn. The horse was isolated in a barn by itself, so there is low risk of exposure to other horses.
Information for this report was provided by the Equine Disease Communication Center.
