Attending veterinarians have reported an outbreak of strangles in Pulaski County, Virginia. An Appaloosa cross gelding began showing clinical signs on August 22, including nasal discharge, swelling of the lymph nodes and fever. The gelding was initially isolated on the farm, but has since been transported off the farm. 

The horse tested positive for strangles on culture by nasal swab, lymph node aspirate and serum. 

A Tennessee Walking Horse gelding and a Quarter Horse mare were also exposed. They were purchased from the same source and were hauled together prior to the onset of clinical signs. The Tennessee Walking Horse gelding and mare have been isolated.
