Animal Health Alert — July 23, 2015 The PRCA is working with Cheyenne Frontier Days (CFD) and the Wyoming Livestock Board (WLSB) and to contain the potential spread of a non-fatal but troublesome virus that infected a CFD trick-rider's horse. The horse's symptoms were discovered by CFD veterinarians and reported to the WLSB on Monday, July 20, 2015. The USDA's National Veterinary Services Laboratories in Ames, Iowa confirmed the horse tested positive for Vesicular Stomatitis (VSV) the day after the symptoms were found. VSV causes vesicles (blisters) that form in the mouth (on the tongue, dental pad and lips), in the nostrils, on areas around the hooves and on the teats. These vesicles swell and break exposing raw tissue. MORE
