Safeguards to Avoid Spread of Disease

by | May 8, 2015 | News | 0 comments

Within the last week there have been confirmed cases of Vesicular Stomatitis Virus (VSV) in Arizona, New Mexico and Utah. To prevent any more spread, the Idaho State Racing Commission and Idaho State Department of Agriculture have put safeguards in place for Live Race Meets in the state. All livestock entering the state that originate from areas where VSV has been diagnosed within the last 30 days will now need a certificate of veterinary inspection dated within the last 14 days. According to the news release sent out the certificate must say, “all animals identified on this certificate of veterinary inspection have been examined and found to be free from Vesicular Stomatitis. During the last thirty (30) days, these animals have neither been exposed to VS nor located within an area where VS has been diagnosed.” To aid in following these regulations, animalregs.com has already added these changes into the system. Animalregs.com will help you find interstate movement requirements as validated by State Animal Health Officials to make planning and traveling a breeze.
