EIA-Postive Horse in Alberta, Canada

A horse from Alberta, Canada, tested positive when trying to enter the United States.

On June 28, 2018, a positive equine infectious anemia (EIA) result was confirmed by the Canadian FIA’s national reference laboratory for a horse on a premises in Ponoka County, Alberta. The horse had been sampled by an accredited veterinarian to comply with U.S. import requirements. No clinical signs of disease were noted at the time of sampling. 

A CFIA investigation is underway and as per program policy, a quarantine has been placed on the infected animal and its on-premises contact animals. The quarantine will remain until all disease response activities have been completed, including follow-up testing and ordering the destruction of positive cases. Trace-out activities may require the CFIA to undertake actions at additional premises as outlined in the current program policy.
