Vesicular Stomatitis Virus Outbreak

Vesicular stomatitis virus (VS) has been identified in Maricopa County. This virus can cause ulcerative lesions of the mouth, tongue, and mucus membranes.

The signs of this virus mimic foot and mouth disease which is why the USDA may restrict movement of horses and cattle from VS affected areas. Currently there are no travel restrictions in place, but that may change within the coming weeks.  If you note any similar signs in your horses or have any concern, please let us know. 

Check our website as well as USDA for current updates. For more information, check out these sites.
