I was thinking the same thing Ricci.. there are no known cases on the East coast so beau I think you are misinformed.

Also, I think the 8 cases must have been a total at the time or something.. not just in WA. I was told by a customer at the feed store I work at so obviously she must have been mistaken*

Does anyone know if the neurological form of it happens after they are infected with the respiratory form of it or can they get the neurological without having any symptoms of the respiratory?

Anyway, here is a site with some more general information about the disease for anyone who would like to know more.
Equine Herpes Virus: Types, Treatment and Prevention

Always remember that feeling of looking at a big, open country over the ears of a good horse, seeing a new trail unwind ahead of you, and that ever-spectacular view from the top of the ridge!!! Follow my training blog: http://robertsontraining.blogspot.com/

According to the Washington State University website: There are no horses exhibiting signs of EHV-1 at WSU, however they will not be admitting any new equine or camelid patients to the WSU Veterinary Teaching Hospital, except for critical emergencies, because a horse was admitted recently that has since been found positive for EHV-1.

No, this wasn't recent. I was just saying that rhino is quite dangerous.

I'm browsing google and can't find any new articles or anything suggesting more cases.
This was like last year, sorry didn't mean for it to sound like it was just now that it happened. I was saying as of now there are no known cases yet in NY. My vet was a part of having to try to help that horse and he said that whole barn was quarintined(sp?) and even the park was said to be a cautious zone at that point

beau, did that horse have the same strain as this? This strain almost sounds like a NEW mutant strain that's even worse than the regular rhino we all vaccinate for... :(

Yes, the strain now is a new variant of Rhino that we are unprepared for. It won't have been what the horse was euthed for last year, from my understanding.

It seems to be sticking to pretty much the western states and most all of the horses that attended the Utah show seem to be the carriers and since they are traveling to other stables, shows, sales, etc that is why more states are seeing it.
Ogden is about 3 hours from me in Wyoming, don't know anyone who attended that cutting show around here. Nothing at our vets so far, but keeping atuned to any possibilities.
This form has no vaccination or preventative. Care consists of IV fluids, antibiotics and just alot of waiting and watching.
I can tell you they are canceling horse shows in Utah like crazy, also sales.
Haven't cancelled any here, but the first one coming up is in June, so time will tell.

A few of the guys I work with participated in the cutting show at Golden Spike, where it originated. One said twelve horses were killed or put down, and another said seven, one girl was saying only two... I'm not sure who's right.
I'm about a half an hour from Ogden, and work up there once a week. I'm getting paranoid- I come into contact with about 10-20 horses up there at the arenas. I am literally getting ready to disinfect my truck as we speak.

Step one: Mount horse. Step two: Stay mounted.

I was surprised this was the only post on it as well considering there was an outbreak on the eastcoast as well. We changed plans on a few events we planned for NJ. Even if they are stating that those horses are quarantined, the horse community in NJ is very close together... with many stables one right on top of the other and riders working horses at several locations.

The only thing you can do is be careful.... wash, change and avoid any area/event near infected areas. I'd rather lose a show season than my horse.
