No new EHV-1 cases; forum on disease planned

September 22, 2011

No new cases of equine herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) have been diagnosed at the University of Tennessee Equine Hospital since the neurological form of the disease was diagnosed in a horse last Thursday.

The equine hospital's quarantine, ordered by the Tennessee state veterinarian, was announced in a statement from the university on September 16.

It said the Veterinary Medical Center expected to maintain voluntary isolation for an additional seven days as clinicians investigated the case.

Meanwhile, an EHV-1 informational forum for horse owners has been planned and will be webcast.

It will be held in room A118 at the University of Tennessee's College of Veterinary Medicine, 2407 River Drive, in Knoxville, 37996 at 7pm, Wednesday, September 21.

The forum will also be webcast here.

The university plans to archive the webcast for those who are unable to view it live.
