VSV Keeps Moving

An updated VSV Situation Report is available at USDA APHIS VS page:

  • Since the start of the outbreak, two hundred seventy-nine (279) VSV-affected premises (New Jersey serotype) have been identified and quarantined in 7 states (Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, South Dakota, Texas, Utah, and Wyoming).
  • As of last week, there are 140 affected premises remaining under quarantine in 5 states (Colorado, New Mexico, South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming).

Fortunately here in AZ we are still without VSV cases.

What I do hear about frequently in the these days from my equine practitioner colleagues is the never-ending colics and laminitis war stories. It’s a harsh environment out there this time of year. Please stay alert and attentive.
