(Swamp Fever/Equine Infectious Anemia/EIA)

Q:  My horse has swamp fever and was put down yesterday. What do I have to do to make sure my new horse does not get it? I have not gotten a horse yet but must first make sure I do all I can so she does not get it.

A: I do not profess to be a veterinarian. So if you are sincere about doing something to protect yourself and your future horses, the AAEP (American Association of Equine Practitioners) web site which is easily found through search engines is available to you. I believe they will answer questions. Also your veterinarian is a source of information. Your local library will have some vet books.

I will recommend one book, How to be Your Own Veterinarian (sometimes), by Ruth B. James, DVM, published by Alpine Press, PO Box 1930, Mills, Wyoming 82644. The book sells for $20 and it is a must-have for horse owners in my opinion. It covers Swamp Fever quite thoroughly.

Respectfully yours,
