Neurological Virus in Horses

Treatment

 

There is no specific treatment for BDV at this time. However, studies have been conducted to isolate the virus and progress is being made towards better treatment options. If a horse in the U.S. were to be diagnosed with this disease, regulatory authorities should be notified.

 

Living and Management

 

In most cases, BDV is fatal in horses but those who do survive have permanent side effects from this debilitating condition, such as reduced brain function or other neurologic impairments that may make ambulation difficult. Euthanasia is often elected.
