May 24, 2011 EHV-1 Update
Currently, there are still 25 known horses in Texas that attended the event and 336 cohorts (stablemates) of the 25 that are currently being held under movement restrictions. The single confirmed case which was a horse from New Mexico that sought treatment in a veterinary clinic in Texas is now recovering. The horse returned to its original premises of origin. The single “suspect” case that was reported Thursday, May 19, from Jack County tested negative for EHV-1, however was euthanized due to the severity of its unrelated illness. TAHC continues to evaluate other unrelated horses with clinical signs, but no additional cases have been confirmed at this time.
