Colorado Vesicular Stomatitis Update


“The number of quarantined premises is actually going down in some counties as horses are healing and the quarantines are being released,” said Keith Roehr, DVM, Colorado state veterinarian. “We continue to see new cases, so continue to ramp up your fly control. The State Veterinarian’s Office is following up on reports of horse owners who have moved their horses out of a quarantined facility. If requirements of the quarantine are not followed, the department will investigate, write citations for violations, and institute fines according to the Livestock Health Act in State statute.”
