  • 26. Equine Infectious Anemia
    • Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), or Swamp Fever, is a viral disease which occurs worldwide. Signs include a high fever, labored breathing, a pounding heartbeat, and exhaustion. As the disease progresses, signs of anemia develop. Horses that recover usually remain carriers of the disease. Most infected horses die within 30 days of getting the disease.
    • The disease is usually spread by horse flies biting an infected horse, then biting a healthy horse. The disease can also be transmitted by the use of non-sterile needles and blood contaminated surgical instruments.
    • There is no cure for EIA so prevention is the key to controlling the disease. The Coggins Test is a simple blood test that is widely accepted as a way of determining carriers of the disease. A Coggins Test is often required to transport, show, sell, or board a horse. Coggins Tests should be updated yearly. Owners of positive horses have to make the choice to put the horse down (euthanized), or have the animal permanently quarantined.
