    February 2, 2016

    Dear Colleagues,

    We have had a single horse that was admitted to the emergency service at the UGA Veterinary Teaching Hospital on Jan. 31, 2016, test positive for Equine Herpes-1 virus.  As a necessary precaution, the UGA Large Animal Teaching Hospital will NOT admit any patients for at least the next 2-3 weeks. As more information becomes available we will be sure to update you. Currently hospitalized horses are being managed according to established recommendations for limiting exposure of additional animals.

    For more information regarding Equine Herpes-1 virus, monitoring, prevention, and control, please visit the AAEP website:

    We are sorry for this inconvenience.  Should you need immediate or emergency care for your equine patients, please contact either Auburn University or your next closest referral center.
