Equine Influeza Outbreak Temporarily Closes Large Animal Hospital

The Veterinary Teaching Hospital at Oregon State University will not accept horses for anything but emergency services until at least Tuesday, Dec. 2, due to three diagnosed cases of equine influenza virus at the hospital.

The virus is a highly contagious respiratory disease in horses that typically is not fatal, but is a particular concern to foals and pregnant mares.The three infected horses have been placed in isolation and are being monitored for signs of disease. Officials wish to emphasize that this is equine influenza virus, not equine herpes virus-1, a more serious disease that is often confused with the influenza virus. Equine influenza is not transferable to humans or other animal species, but can spread rapidly among horses and other equine species.

Other than equine species, the situation will not affect the care of any other small or large animals at the hospital.


The College of Veterinary Medicine offers public tours of its facilities to groups and individuals.
