Infectious Horse Herpes Virus Results in N.J. Farm Quarantine

Infectious Horse Herpes Virus Results in N.J. Farm Quarantine
BY LYNNE RICHMOND
SPECIAL TO NEWJERSEYNEWSROOM.COM

TRENTON – The New Jersey Department of Agriculture has quarantined a Westampton farm after a 5-year-old horse was diagnosed with the highly infectious equine herpes myeloencephalopathy (EHM) caused by equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) respiratory strain. EHM is the often deadly, neurologic form of EHV-1 infection.

The horse had rapid progression of clinical signs typical of EHV-1 including front and rear lack of muscle control, hind limb weakness, stumbling and right facial paralysis.

The animal was humanely euthanized on February 14.

A 21-day quarantine was placed on the barn on the property and biosecurity measures are in effect for the duration of the quarantine. All remaining horses will have their temperature monitored twice a day. Horse movement in and out of the premises has been analyzed and traces are being followed. To date, none of the other animals have shown signs of illness.
