As provided by Virden Animal Hospital - July 14 at 10:24pm
We have had new cases reported this week. We now have 5 premises in total in MB where EIA has been confirmed.
1) RM of St Clement 2) RM of Armstrong 3) RM of Hanover 4) RM of St Andrews 5) RM of Armstrong
All of the above premises have been placed under quarantine, and all positive horses were inapparent carriers showing no clinical signs. The 5th premise has just been confirmed by CFIA and 6 horses at this premises have tested positive to date.
It is unknown at this time how many horses may have been exposed to the confirmed inapparent carriers or exactly what the risk of infection may be to any horses exposed. These inapparent carriers have been shown to carry a much lower amount of EIA virus in their blood vs an acutely infected horse which makes them less likely to spread the disease to other horses through biting flies. With that said, there remains a small chance that EIA transmission could occur. The CFIA ...

Kelly and Bonnie Campbell hosted their first show in 2014. Since then they have successfully been running shows mainly in the Brandon area - but we were so pleased when they also ran one at the Manitoba Equestrian Centre in Birds Hill Park. Their shows are highly professional and well organized - keeping in mind the objective of running a properly qualified show that is fun for the participants. The service they are providing means that there are more opportunities for equine enthusiasts to test their skills in the arena. We have been told by many that the special attention they pay to beginning riders is having a very positive impact on the sport. In addition to all of the good work they do they have also used part of their registration fees as a contribution to Breast Cancer Research.
