More than three weeks have passed since the Oregon State Veterinarian reported the last confirmed case of equine herpesvirus-1 myeloencephalopathy in the state. At this time, we are cautiously optimistic and believe it’s safe to resume normal travel and activities with your horses. That said, we recommend continuing to be vigilant with your biosecurity measures. That means keeping your horse’s vaccinations up to date, avoiding nose-to-nose contact between horses, and monitoring and logging temperatures while traveling and at horse shows/events. Finally, isolate your horse and seek veterinary advice if he or she exhibits clinical signs associated with EHV-1, including fever, nasal discharge, coughing, lethargy, and in some cases ataxia (incoordination).

A Message From Bend Equine Medical Center To Our Small Animal Division Clients

As of March 31, 2023, Bend Equine Medical Center will be discontinuing our small animal veterinary division other than chiropractic and acupuncture. As always, we continue to proudly serve as Central Oregon's premier equine hospital and offer around-the-clock care for your horses and equids.

You and your pets are close to our hearts and we are honored you trusted us with their care over the past decade. Please contact us to have your pets' records transferred to your new small animal veterinarian.

Thank you for your email
