To help clear confusion, TheHorse.com is hosting an online Q&A about equine herpesvirus type-1 at 8 p.m. on Thursday, March 7, with neurologic disease researcher Dr. Rob MacKay of the University of Florida and epidemiologist Dr. Nicola Pusterla of the University of California, Davis. 


Many aspects of EHV-1 are confusing and common questions include:

  • “What do you mean the virus ‘behaves’ in different ways?”
  • “What is the wild-type vs. the neuropathogenic strain?”
  • “Does it make a difference whether my positive horse has no clinical signs?”
  • “Will vaccinating help in the face of an outbreak?”

Ask the Vet LIVE is your opportunity to get informed, understand the illness and prepare in case veterinarians detect EHV-1 in your area. Sign up for an event reminder and submit your questions for this event.

Ask the Vet LIVE is a free equine health care podcast and Q&A. Coordinated monthly by the editors of TheHorse.com and equine veterinarians, each Ask the Vet LIVE focuses on hand-picked equine health care topics, conditions and concerns. Veterinarians familiar with the subject present how-to's, hands-on advice and helpful topical information in an easy to follow format. In addition to answering pre-submitted questions during the podcast, veterinarians are available to answer questions submitted during each monthly equine health event. Each presentation is approximately 60-minutes in length and is available after the initial live event for on-demand listening on TheHorse.com.
