Dear All

Our Newspaper released today the information that more than 2000 catle died in Egypt on this terrible decease and over 20,000 are infected, and will die.

this decease is highly contagious and kills fast. In 1945 we had it in East Germany and lost thousands of cattle and horses, mostly farm horses. I saw one actually dropping dead pulling a cart while the other one- then unhitched- made it to the next field and then dropped dead. They bloat up badly within a short time.

I am deeply concerned about the horses in Egypt and hope that strong precausion is taken, i.e. to quarantine oneself, to not let anybody near the horses, and/or have them go with their feet through a strong disinfectant bath, to NOT touch any horse/cows/buffalo etc. and have all owners also stay away from other cows/buffalo and horses.
Sanitary conditions is a MUST!

I dont know what can be done about this in Egypt, if there is a prevention inoculation or what.
Of course, one also should avoid any display shows, of any kind.

I am sorry that I have to report this and pray that our fellow breeders/owners do not suffer
losses.

Foot and mouth disease does not affect horses. I was in a USDA vet office last week with a friend who was getting export docs done, and they had an interesting pamphlet on this disease. See http://www.aphis.usda.gov/newsroom/hot_issues/fmd/fmd.shtml

Maybe vesicular stomatitis? The symptons are similar to hoof and mouth disease.
