Equine viral arteritis (EVA) is a cause of concern for horse owners and breeders, but luckily it is a manageable issue. The virus, which may cause abortion in mares throughout gestation, is most commonly spread via nasal discharge. It may also be spread via breeding, as the virus can be carried in a stallion’s semen.

Dr. Joe Manning, a reproduction specialist formerly of Equine Sports Medicine Services in Weatherford, Texas, and Peter Timoney, a professor and researcher specializing in EVA at the Gluck Equine Research Center in Lexington, Kentucky, explain what EVA is and why it should be a concern for horse owners and breeders.

In the FREE e-book, EVA: A Manageable Problem, you’ll learn:

  • The symptoms of EVA.
  • How to prevent EVA.
  • Treatment of EVA.
  • What to do if there’s a chance your horse has been exposed to EVA.

EVA is not usually lethal to adult horses. Mares, geldings and sexually immature stallions normally recover within a few weeks once infected. However, they will test seropositive for the remainder of their lives.
