Please be aware
that positive cases of Vesicular Stomatitis (VS) have been confirmed in
Colorado. Horse owners are encouraged to be vigilant with surveillance for
disease symptoms. Strict fly control is an important factor to inhibit
the transmission of the disease. VS disease prevention procedures include
minimizing the sharing of water and feed/equipment, applying insect repellent
daily (especially to the animal’s ears), and closely observing animals for
signs of VS.
