Defra confirms case of Equine Infectious Anaemia (EIA)

3 October 2012 – Defra has confirmed that a case of Equine Infectious Anaemia (EIA) has been detected in a horse in Cornwall.

The affected horse will be humanely destroyed; all other precautions were promptly taken to prevent infection from spreading, including movement restrictions on the premises at which it was stabled.
Horses stabled alongside the infected animal are currently being tested for signs of disease.

EIA is a notifiable disease: anyone suspecting the disease must immediately notify the duty vet at their local AHVLA office.

The Horse Racing Betting Levy Board has produced an information leaflet on EIA which is available HERE
