Equine Herpesvirus Myeloencephalopathy in Chesterfield County, Virginia

Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services

On January 31, 2018 the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (VDACS) confirmed a diagnosis of Equine Herpesvirus Myeloencephalopathy (EHM) in a horse in central Virginia. A horse exhibiting neurological signs and a fever is housed in a horse-boarding stable in Chesterfield County that has been placed under quarantine. All exposed horses are being monitored twice daily for fever (temperature over 101.50 F) and other clinical signs, and VDACS will be working with the stable’s owner to determine if any exposed horses have left the premises.
