The Colorado State Veterinarian’s office has reported that the one Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) case in Colorado is the only confirmed case. The case of EIA was reported in Weld County, and the premise is now under quarantine. Two other associated premises are under hold orders.

These holds will remain in place until retesting is complete with negative outcomes.

There are 122 horses in Colorado that are under hold orders after leaving the premise where the affected horse was stabled. Additionally, there are 57 horses that have left the state that are under hold orders. The states the horses went to include: Arizona, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maine, Nebraska, Nevada, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming. Hold on all horses will be released after the result of a negative EIA test 60 days after exposure to the EIA-positive horse.
