Frequently Asked Questions

Q.

Q. 
Q. 
Q.  Why vaccinate your horse?
A.  Vaccination may be the only way to help protect horses from some diseases, preventing disease causes less stress than recovery from infection, and many diseases cause permanent damage or death.


Q.  What is West Nile virus (WNV) and how does it spread?
A.  WNV attacks the central nervous system, including the brain. It is transmitted by mosquitoes that feed on infected birds and it can infect both horses and people. WNV is not contagious from horse to horse or horse to human. One in three WNV-infected horses may die. WNV continues to be diagnosed throughout the United States.


Q.  What are the signs and treatment for WNV?
A.  Horses with WNV often show signs related to a nervous disorder, including:
  • Lack of coordination
  • Stumbling
  • Excitability
  • Muscle trembling



Q.  How can I help prevent my horse from being infected with WNV?
A.  Preventing WNV starts with annual vaccination and good management. Since it is transmitted by mosquitoes, schedule annual vaccination prior to the mosquito season, and take steps to reduce mosquito populations.


Q.  Why is it important to reduce mosquito populations?
A.  Mosquitoes are the only way for your horse - or you - to contract WNV, Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE) or Western equine encephalitis (WEE). When you lower the number of mosquitoes, you lower the risk.

Tips to help reduce the number of mosquitoes around your horse:

  • Remove breeding areas, such as upside down trash can lids and discarded tires
  • Clean livestock watering troughs and birdbaths
  • Don't let water gather in wheelbarrows, gutters or unused water buckets
  • Use approved insecticides
