Texas had 25 reported cases of equine infectious anemia in 2017.

The Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC) confirmed equine infectious anemia (EIA) in 23 Quarter Horses, 1 Thoroughbred, and 1 Paint horse during the 2017 calendar year. 

One or more EIA-positive horses were located in the following Texas counties: Brazoria, Dallas, El Paso, Fort Bend, Grayson, Harris, Johnson, Kaufman, Kimble, McLennan, and Tarrant.

The Equine Disease Communication Center (EDCC) works to protect horses and the horse industry from the threat of infectious diseases in North America. The communication system is designed to seek and report real time information about disease outbreaks similar to how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) alerts the human population about diseases in people.
