Vesicular Stomatitis: 17 Colorado counties
As of Nov. 4, 2015, the Colorado Department of Agriculture’s State Veterinarian’s Office has 80 locations in 17 counties under quarantine after horses, mules, and cattle herds tested positive for Vesicular Stomatitis (VS).
“Now that most areas of the state have had a frost, the insect populations should be subsiding. We hope this translates into rapidly decreasing case numbers as well. But, until we see those case numbers reduced, I encourage all livestock owners to be aware of their county status and take the proper precautions to prevent insect populations on their property,” said State Veterinarian, Dr. Keith Roehr.
