7/24/2015 First Colorado Horse Infected with West Nile Virus in 2015
Veterinarians and Livestock Owners: State Veterinarian’s Office, (303) 869-9130
A horse in Boulder County has been diagnosed with West Nile Virus (WNV). This is the first confirmed case of WNV in livestock for 2015.
“Strict insect control is an important factor to inhibit the transmission of West Nile Virus. I encourage livestock owners to keep an eye out for standing water for mosquito populations,” said State Veterinarian, Dr. Keith Roehr.
The transmission of the disease varies from year to year and depends on a number of factors including mosquito numbers. The WNV can be amplified and carried by infected birds and then spread locally by mosquitoes that bite those birds. The mosquitoes can then pass the virus to humans and animals.
