IMPORTANT UPDATE ON EQUINE FLU

The Equine Infectious Disease Surveillance team has reported a significant rise in confirmed diagnoses of equine influenza in GB over the last two weeks. These cases have overwhelmingly been in unvaccinated animals and appear to be linked to a pony sale in the UK and a sport horse sale in Ireland. Neither sale had a requirement for flu vaccination.
BEVA is reminding all yards to be vigilant with biosecurity, quarantine all new arrivals, and (now that flu vaccines are available again) make sure all vaccinations are up to date.
