Equine viral arteritis - EVA

Equine viral arteritis (EVA) is a contagious disease of equids (horses, donkeys, mules) caused by equine arteritis virus (EAV) that is present in many equine populations worldwide. The disease, referred to in the past by a variety of clinically descriptive terms, is believed to have afflicted horses in Western Europe for centuries. Although not considered life-threatening in otherwise healthy, older horses, EVA is of industry concern because it can result in economically significant outbreaks of abortion in pregnant mares and very infrequently, death in young foals, as well as establishment of a long-term carrier state in stallions.
