Information Regarding Vesicular Stomatitis (VS) In Horses
Vesicular stomatitis (VS) is a viral disease that usually
affects horses and cattle. While it seldom poses a serious threat
to the life of affected animals, it is very important in our
country because the clinical signs are almost indistinguishable
from Foot and Mouth Disease, a disease that has been eradicated
from North America for decades. Therefore, our animal health
agencies have made VS a reportable disease.
