Questions about strangles
There was an outbreak of strangles in the barn where we keep our horse. Although our horse seems immune to the disease, I'm concerned he's a carrier for the disease.
Half the year we live in one state, and half the year we live in another. Soon we will be taking the horse with us to another barn, and are concerned that if he's a carrier, he could infect the other barn as well, even though he did not get any of the symptoms.
The outbreak happened, in mid-January 2008. Can he still be a carrier for it in mid-April? Is there any way to test if he's a carrier? About how much does this cost?
Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
