Flu Outbreaks diagnosed by AHT

Several outbreaks of equine influenza have recently been diagnosed in the UK by the Animal Health Trust. Areas affected in the last two weeks include CORNWALLESSEXSOMERSET and SUSSEX in England, and EAST LOTHIAN and PERTHSHIRE in Scotland. Some of the affected horses were recently imported from Ireland.

Please be on the lookout for the classic influenza signs including a harsh dry cough, nasal discharge, pyrexia and inappetance. Particularly in these areas, or in horses that have recently been transported. Signs may be mild in vaccinated horses.
