Equine Herpes killing horses- I need a new vet.

ALERT: Possible Equine Herpesvirus Outbreak in Cutting Horses - Quarter Horse News - The News Magazine of the Performance Horse Industry

My boy has some warts on his nose and had some on his eyelid. I know I have posted about this before- something about the two year old fresian/andalusian coming into our pasture with them, and now my horse has them, annoying but happens in horses. Well my vet just said they would fall off, but now horses are dying from this. I am concerned, especially with Citrus' being on his nose, right by the beginning of his airway. The horse that died already was in Colorado.... I am calling the vet in this article today.

"Equine-facilitated therapy employs a form of biofeedback for practicing self-awareness, emotional management, and relationship skills that human role-playing exercises and discussion groups cannot begin to access." Linda Kohanov (The Tao of Equus)

Warts are not a symptom of the neurological form of equine herpesvirus (EHV-1). Juvenil warts will run their course in 1-2 months with no problems.

Wart are just warts -- not a symptom of something more serious.

The neurological form of EVH1 presents itself as a fever, sometime a snotty nose and severe neurological symptoms similar to those seen in Encephalitis and EPM. It spreads like wildfire and only has a 2 -4 day incubation period.

They just cancelled the huge Breeder's Invitational Cutting that was to start in Tulsa, OK today. Several horses came down with it that were at the Big Western Cutting held the last two weeks in Ogden, Utah. Now, horses that returned to their homes from Utah are being quarantined in several states to make sure they did not bring home the virus. Several big Cutting Horse farms in California that we know very well are under quarentine.

We just cancelled sending a Mecom Blue filly we have to Sandy Collier in the Santa Ynea Valley. Her place is not under quarantine but so many places near her are that we did not want to chance sending a valuable filly from here to there while all of this is going on.

The AQHA website is putting up daily updates as is the NCHA website.

Our arena just put out a warning about this as well to all the members. They mentioned the horses in CA.
Do you know what the symptoms are?

So in lies the madness, the pursuit of the impossible in the face of the complete assurance that you will fail, and yet still you chase.

It will start with a fever and nasal discharge. It progresses rapidly with atxaia, hind end weakness, incontence and finally recombency. The only really way to protect your horses is to limit exposure as it can transmitted by nose to nose contact, feed and grooming products (farriers and vets too) and aerosol. The current EHV-1/EHV-4 vaccine does not offer protection from the neurological form but it will offer some support for the upper respiratory part.
