Symptoms of West Nile Virus

West Nile Virus is a mosquito-borne virus that cause encephalitis
(swelling of the brain and spinal cord).

The incubation period of the WNV is 5 to 15 days starting the day the horse was bitten.

The most common signs that may affect the horse are:

 

  • altered gait in the horse
  • muscle tremors
  • ever
  • depression
  • loss of appetite
  • inability to swallow
  • circling
  • impaired vision
  • weakness of the hind legs
  • head pressing and directionless wandering
  • partial paralysis
  • convulsion
  • ataxia (a loss of the sense of where their feet are placed)
  • drunken appearance
  • hyper excitability
  • coma and death

Affected horses may develop a fever 8 to 10 days prior to the onset of the clinical signs.

The symptoms of WNV are very similar to those of rabies (EPM), equine encephalitis and other dangerous neurological diseases.

Notify your veterinarian immediately if any of the signs you have read above are present in your horse.

There is no cure for WNV, but there is a vaccine and it is highly recommended by veterinarians and horse owners alike.
