Strangles Confirmed in Clark County

Boulder City – Two cases of Strangles have been reported at a facility in Boulder City in Clark County. There are over 12 presumptive other cases based on clinical signs at the same premise. Clinical signs were first seen by a local veterinarian on February 4. On February 19 one horse was reported to have died after exhibiting signs, although no confirmatory testing on cause of death was completed.

Strict biosecurity is being encouraged and the Nevada State Veterinarian has asked to facility to impose a voluntary hold on the movement of animals into and out of the premise.
