Viruses associated with respiratory disease of horses in New Zealand: an update


, : Viruses associated with respiratory disease of horses in New Zealand: an update. New Zealand Veterinary Journal 34(4): 46-50

A serological survey was conducted of 121 New Zealand foals and horses that had been affected by respiratory disease. To date there is no evidence of equine influenzavirus in New Zealand. Both equine herpesvirus types 1 and 2 have been isolated frequently and show high serological prevalences. Serological evidence of equine rhinovirus types 1 and 2 is presented with a prevalence of 12.3% and 41.2% respectively observed in foal sera, and 37.7% and 84.9% in adult horse sera.
