Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1) - neurological form: updates from FEI

updates updates

13 March 2021

A group of eight Belgian horses departed from the Valencia venue this morning. Paperwork for the Dutch, German and British horses is in the process of being prepared.

All horses on-venue in Valencia are now off medication. These horses are being monitored by the two OC Veterinarians and an FEI Treating Veterinarian. There is also an FEI Treating Veterinarian supporting the work at the Valencia equine hospital.

The FEI has been notified that a horse in France is showing clinic symptoms and has tested positive for EHV-1 after returning from Doha. This is a close in-contact of the horse in Belgium that, after returning to its home stables, had initially tested positive, but negative on a re-test. All 85 horses from Doha are already blocked in the FEI Database until they have completed the necessary biosecurity measures.
