Recently confirmed cases of Equine Herpes Myeloencephalopathy (EHM) in North Dakota and South Dakota have prompted State Veterinarian Dr. Dennis Hughes to remind horse owners to remember to always use best biosecurity practices.
“With fair, exposition and rodeo season gearing up, it is of utmost importance that horse owners and facility managers take appropriate precautions to prevent the introduction and spread of this disease in Nebraska,” said Dr. Hughes. “Vigilance is especially important in situations where horses can come into contact with each other. There can be a high susceptibility to the disease where we have horses comingling from different regions or states.”
