A horse in Clark County, Nevada, has tested positive for equine herpesvirus type-1, according to Nevada Acting State Veterinarian Dr. Anette Rink.
On April 17, Dr. Rink told TheHorse.com via e-mail that the affected horse has never exhibited neurologic signs of disease and "is expected to make a full recovery." The animal is currently isolated and under quarantine, and all stablemates' temperatures are being monitored daily.
"This is an individual case, not an outbreak, and no other horses outside the premises have been exposed," Dr. Rink wrote.
