EHV-1 (Equine Herpes Virus) outbreak

EHV-1 outbreak update 13/01/20

On Thursday 9 January, the British Equestrian Federation (BEF) issued an update following the confirmed diagnosis of EHV-1 (Equine Herpes Virus) at an equestrian centre in Hampshire, which has now been named as Crofton Manor Equestrian Centre in Fareham.

In consultation with the Animal Health Trust, the BEF is today strongly recommending that any horse or pony who visited Crofton Manor EC between 20 December and 7 January is tested by a veterinary surgeon for EHV. This is in addition to the originally recommended isolation period of 14 days and daily clinical monitoring. Owners of any horses or ponies who have been to Crofton EC in the specified should liaise directly with their veterinary surgeon on the testing process and advice.

EHV-1 is a contagious disease that can be spread through direct and indirect contact, with the virus surviving in the environment for several weeks. Clinical signs include a high temperature, coughing, nasal discharge, lethargy and loss of appetite. Severely affected animals can display neurological symptoms, and pregnant mares can also suddenly and unexpectantly miscarry their unborn foal.
The BEF recommends that all horse owners remain vigilant for signs of the virus, maintain excellent biosecurity and consult with their vets if they are concerned.

UPDATE on Danni – FALL at WL SJumping Southview

UPDATE:

Hi, please can you update people to let them know Danni is making good progress and has been taken off ventilator. She’s aware of all messages of support and help and she’s really grateful. Thankyou! Gail Thomas x
 

Danni Thomas from CHN Branch had a nasty fall yesterday and was taken to Alderhay by Air Ambulance.  I know that everyone was very worried  but the latest news is that she is on a ventilator, is stable but sedated. She has severely bruised her lungs but her ribs are intact.  She has no other obvious injuries.

I am told that the situation was handled brilliantly by the organisers.

We wish her a speedy recovery.
