The Texas Animal Health Commission received confirmation July 18 of three new cases of Vesicular Stomatitis (VS) in horses in Central Texas. One premise is located 8 miles southeast of Seguin in Guadalupe County.

To date, 13 premises in eight Texas counties have been confirmed with VS. Affected counties include(d) Kinney, Hidalgo, San Patricio, Nueces, Jim Wells, Bastrop, Travis, and Guadalupe counties.

The newly identified infected premises are currently under quarantine by the state animal health commission. Premises are eligible for quarantine release 21 days after all lesions have healed. There is no known exposure to other horses around the state, or at any equine events.

On July 8, the first VS case in Texas cattle was detected in two head of cattle in South Texas, approximately 6 miles southwest of Mathis.

For more information about VS, visit the Texas Animal Health Commission’s brochure at bit.ly/1k156rR.

Symptoms of VS

Vesicular Stomatitis (VS) can cause blisters and sores in the mouth and on the tongue, muzzle, teats, or hooves of horses, cattle, swine, sheep, goats, llamas, and a number of other animals. Lesions usually will heal in two or three weeks. Because of the contagious nature of VS and its resemblance to other diseases such as foot and mouth disease, animal-health officials urge live-stock owners and caretakers to report these symptoms to their veterinarian immediately.
