Update on Wyoming EHV-1 Neurologic Outbreak

Wyoming officials continue to test horses and quarantine premises in an EHV-1 neurologic outbreak.

The Wyoming Livestock Board has confirmed on Thursday, February 8, that a fourth horse was confirmed positive for EHV-1 wild type. This horse originated from the same premises as the first horse, so no further quarantines were necessary. The index case was euthanized due to physical complications of his disease. The most recently diagnosed EHV-1-positive horse is stable and is being treated at the veterinary facility where it was evaluated.

A previous report stated that three premises and 26 horses were in quarantine in Wyoming for EHV-1 wild type. 

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.
