equine herpes virus

Have a question regarding equine herpes virus. Does anybody know who I contact about a person who has a horse that tested positive for equine herpes virus.

I would think the vet that tested for it would do any reporting that was needed.

The problem is that the horse got tested and the vet told her to euthanize the horse but she didn't want to because the horse was pregnant. The person called CSU vet hospital they said to put the horse down also. They (vets) are under the impression that the horse was put down but IT IS NOT!!

I don't want any of the livestock including mine (mare/colt) to get infected with this.

This is only the tip of idiots that "adopted" free horses off of craigslist in my area..

Nearly every horse is infected with EHV it is that prevalent in the equine world. This is why horses, under stress or strain as in foals at weaning or horses having been through a sales ring, often get 'snotty'
The danger lies in the virus mutating into EHV! Which causes paralysis. Very few horses survive this mutation.

If the horse was diagnosed with the neurologic form of EHV-1 disease, then it does need to be quarantined, at the very least. From what I've read, the prognosis is NOT good. If you're worried about your animals, contact CSU (I'm assuming they're close) and ask them what to do or who to talk to.

If the horse has the respiratory form of the disease, make sure yours are vaccinated and that they have no physical contact.

Well that person in questions' (will call her girl 1) horse had the baby but the father-in-law shot the mare. He is a rancher with lots of horses and girl 1 was hiding the fact from him also. So far the are two other confirmed cases here and a friend of ours (girl 2) was concerned about her horses got them tested and they were neg. The vet office from girl 2 contacted girl 1's vet office and s**t is going to fly for that vet who DID NOT report the confined case to the state.
