Horse Inspections Mandatory If Coming To Wyoming
The Wyoming Livestock Board declared a new order for every horse entering the state must be inspected by a veterinarian.
Equine Herpes Virus-1 is a fatal virus that can be easily transmitted through horse populations. The virus can be airbourne and can also be transmitted by touch or by the sharing of mouth bits, other horse accessories or equipment.
The order states that horses must be inspected by a veterinarian 72 hours before traveling into the state of Wyoming. The order will remain in effect until it is rescinded by the state veterinarian.
Equine Herpes Virus-1 is easily transmittable between horses but does not pose any risk to humans.
