Recommendations for a Biosecurity Program from the AAEP

With the recent outbreak of EHV-1 in Europe and now cases reported in Ocala, Florida as well many horse owners are worried about how to protect their horses.  The American Association for Equine Practitioners outlines Biosecurity measures to take.  It’s important to follow these at all times, but especially during times of travel and when you know diseases are present in an area.

In addition to these recommendations it is good practice to take your horses temperature daily to monitor for change.  Taking temperature daily will allow you to learn your horses baseline.
