Annual Testing for Equine Infectious Anemia

by | Feb 16, 2015 | News | 0 comments

Louisiana State AgCenter equine specialist, Neely Walker, MS, PhD, is encouraging owners to test for equine infectious anemia (EIA) annually. After a string of positive EIA tests in racing Quarter Horses in California, testing is becoming even more important. It is critical to follow regulations when testing for this viral disease that only affects horses, mules, donkeys, and zebras. While there is no effective treatment for EIA, it is important to detect the disease to prevent other animals around them from getting the disease.
