    They're canceling racing at Vernon Downs, and stopping shipping until further notice..

    FB discussion mentions a horse that died at Vernon just shipped up from FL.

    From the University of Minnesota Equine Center:

    "As we go into the weekend, we wanted to post a quick update on the current status of the EHV-1 cluster. At present EHV-1 has been isolated from 4 horses with characteristic neurological signs. Tests are still outstanding on a few neurologic and non-neurologic suspect cases.

    The good news is that there have been no new neurological cases identified over the past few days. The local horse community has been coming together wonderfully to address the situation, and affected properties and known exposed horses are under appropriate quarantine. For uninvolved horses and properties, the general recommendation is to avoid unnecessary transport and mixing of horses at shows, clinics, and competitions. Many, though not all, upcoming shows and clinics have been canceled.

    One aspect of the situation that has been a point of confusion for many has been the fact that the “non-neuropathogenic” genetic variant of EHV-1 has been identified in each of the confirmed positive cases. This terminology is a bit unfortunate, as it is often interpreted to mean that only the respiratory form of EHV-1 has been diagnosed, or that biosecurity measures may be less rigorous. This is not the case! While the majority of outbreaks of neurological EHV-1 are caused by the “neuropathogenic” genetic variant, up to 25% of them are caused by the "non-neuropathogenic" type. It is not a particularly important distinction when dealing with an outbreak, as rigorous biosecurity measures must be imposed for both variants - this variant can simply be viewed as being somewhat “less neuropathogenic” than the more virulent alternative. The Minnesota Board of Animal Health only considers disease caused by the neuropathogenic variant to be reportable. Quarantines and event cancellations are voluntary and the responsibility for good decision-making resides firmly with horse owners and their veterinarians."

    Update posted from Stillwater vet clinic Posted about 5:00 Wenesday on Facebook.

    3/26/2014

    Unfortunately today another EHV 1 positive case was reported in Wright County MN. This horse ran a fever on 3/20/2014 tested positive as of today and started showing neurologic signs today.

    Also a case from last week in Winona County MN was also confirmed. This case started showing neurological signs on 3/14/2014 was treated and later tested. The test for this horse came back positive this morning.


    Case State County Date
    Case 1 MN Chisago Euthanized EHV-1 positive 3/8/2014
    Case 2 MN Chisago Recovering EHV-1 positive 3/8/2014
    Case 3 MN Dakota Euthanized EHV-1 positive 3/18/2014
    Case 4 WI Polk Recovering tests pending 3/20/2014
    Case 5 MN Hennepin Recovering EHV-1 positive 3/21/2014
    Case 6 WI Burnett Euthanized tests pending 3/20/2014
    Case 7 MN Winona Recovering Test positive 3/26/2014
    Case 8 MN Wright Test positive 3/26/2014

    7/8 cases are either barrel horses or are on farms with barrel horses. To date no one point source has been found to explain this outbreak.

    The Equine Veterinarians in Private Practice, University of Minnesota and the Minnesota Board of Animal health are all networking (phone, text, email) to try to keep you up to date as much as possible.

    Iowa case of EHV1

    Today it was found that a non barrel horse, originating form Iowa stopping at destinations in both Freeborn County MN and Hennepin County MN then going back to Iowa, tested positive for EHV-1 non neurotropic . On Monday 3/24/2014 the horse became neurologic and was unable to urinate. On 3/26/2014 the horse tested positive. This information was shared with us by a colleague and confirmed by the office of the Veterinarian treating the horse in Iowa. This obviously is of great concern considering the number of horses exposed.

    Case State County Date
    Case 1 MN Chisago Euthanized EHV-1 positive 3/8/2014
    Case 2 MN Chisago Recovering EHV-1 positive 3/8/2014
    Case 3 MN Dakota Euthanized EHV-1 positive 3/18/2014
    Case 4 WI Polk Recovering EHV-1 positive3/20/2014
    Case 5 MN Hennepin Recovering EHV-1 positive 3/21/2014
    Case 6 WI Burnett Euthanized tests pending 3/20/2014
    Case 7 MN Freeborn Recovering Test positive 3/26/2014
    Case 8 MN Wright Test positive 3/26/2014
    Case 9 Iowa and MN Freeborn and Hennepin Positive 3/26/2014

    Please note that some of these horses live in one County , train in another County and show in yet another County. It is now apparent that there are cases circling the twin cities metro area, and some out state.

These cases were re examined in light of the heightened suspicions. Case 6 was a pony which was euthanized before March 18 and has now been found to be negative for EHV1 .
    There is another farm in Wisconsin (St Croix County) that had a suspicious case in February and now has another suspicious case, current tests are pending.

    Everything I saw said the horse was from Northern Virginia and it had EHM. Did one of the horses from the above barn come from Northern Virginia? It would be really nice if the state vets would at least release the discipline of the horse.

    I knew nothing other than The Paulick Report article, passed along from a FB page. Wondered also why the horse would have picked it up at Aqueduct, but saw it had had a break after Jacobson claimed it. Then when hearing about the VA horse, was wondering myself if it had a layover at one of the farms down there. Makes sense. Plus Jacobson had a horse run Saturday anyway - must have been stabled elsewhere.

    Here's another article on DRF. They're saying the quarantine only precautionary, and hope to know more later in the week. Rudy Rodriguez also had horses in that barn. http://www.drf.com/news/aqueduct-qua...-precautionary
