AUSTIN-- The Texas Animal Health Commission (TAHC) has designated Kleberg County equine (horses, mules, zebras, etc.) at high risk for exposure to Equine Piroplasmosis (Piro,) and will begin testing equine animals in Kleberg County on Monday, April 8.

Equine Piroplasmosis is a blood-borne protozoal disease that affects all equine, including horses, ponies, donkeys, mules, and zebras. Piroplasmosis can be transmitted from a positive horse to a negative horse by blood transfer from dirty instruments or insect carriers, such as ticks. Piro is not transmissible to humans. Through research, a treatment protocol was developed that clears the infection and can lead to the release of horses that eventually test negative.

Piro is currently not considered endemic in Texas or the United States; however, isolated outbreaks of the disease have occurred.

After extensive testing in Kenedy and Kleberg counties, numerous Piro cases have been detected, therefore Kleberg County has been designated as a high risk area for Piro.

There are an estimated 225 premises and 500 equine animals in the initial Kleberg County test area, extending south from Escondido Creek to the Kleberg-Kenedy county line. Projected completion date is the summer of 2013.

For Kleberg County equine owners and/or veterinary practitioners who have questions, contact the Region 5 Office at 1-361-358-3234.
