EVA is an important if uncommon disease of horses. Potential economic losses attributable to EVA include direct losses from abortion, pneumonia in neonates, and febrile disease in performance horses. Indirect losses are those associated with national and international trade/animal movement regulations, particularly those pertaining to persistently infected carrier stallions and their semen. However, EAV infection and EVA are readily prevented through serological and virological screening of horses, coupled with sound management practices that include appropriate quarantine and strategic vaccination.
