Equinews

According to information from the Equine Disease Communication Center (EDCC), three horses in Lambton County, Ontario, were confirmed as having contracted eastern equine encephalitis (EEE).

The EDCC, by way of the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs, reported that the three horses - two Quarter Horse geldings, 20 and 11 years old; and a yearling filly - began to display the signs of the disease on September 22, 2020, and were confirmed as positive for EEE on October 9. All three horses succumbed to the illness.

Researchers at the UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine have identified a genetic cause for the fatal condition equine familial isolated hypoparathyroidism (EFIH) in Thoroughbreds, marking the first genetic variant for hypoparathyroidism identified in any domestic animal species. Additionally, this is the first widely available genetic test for Thoroughbreds.
