Industry alert regarding Equine Herpes Virus 4 (EHV 4)
As we move into a busy period of horse activity, remember New Zealand has some nasty infectious diseases that we need to ensure we don’t spread through carelessness.
Equine herpes Virus 4 (EHV 4) has reared its head as the suspected bug in three sick young non-yearling sales horses at a North Island property.
This is a timely reminder to wash and disinfect when moving between properties looking at yearlings.
Your vet can advise on the need for vaccination.
