Although the disease has been recognized for centuries, its prevalence began to rise in the s and reached its destructive peak in the United States between the ’60s and ’70s.

EIA is an infectious and potentially fatal viral disease of members of the horse family. The equine infectious anemia virus (EIAv) is categorized as a retrovirus: it contains genetic RNA material, which it uses to produce DNA.

The DNA is then incorporated into the genetic makeup of infected cells. There is no vaccine or treatment for the disease. Includes a comprehensive section on the prevention and control of infectious diseases.

There is no vaccine or treatment for EIA. Once a horse is infected, it remains infected for life and is always a potential reservoir for spread of the disease. Anemia in horses is a condition in which there is a deficiency in the bloodstream of red blood cells (RBC), hemoglobin, and in total volume.

Anemia in horses may stem from blood loss, red blood cells being eliminated, or the body’s inability to produce red blood cells.

The Montana Department of Livestock recommends regular EIA testing as part of a good equine health management program, especially for those equines regularly in contact with other equines of unknown EIA status.

In addition, having horses tested prior to purchase is highly recommended. Equine Infectious Anemia The Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) virus belongs to the family Retroviridae. This group of viruses includes human immunodeficiency virus (HIV), the immunodeficiency viruses of apes and monkeys (SIV), goats (CAEV), cats (FIV) and cattle (BIV).

Despite regulatory efforts, each year hundreds of horses become infected. Most owners are familiar with Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), which is what a Coggins test checks for. EIA is a viral disease that attacks the immune system, destroying blood in the process.

Thanks to the use of the Coggins test, EIA is very rare (though not unheard-of) in the United States. The only definite means of diagnosis of equine infectious anemia which is now available is the horse inoculation test. On account of the expense involved, this is utilized only if the sick horse is valuable or there are other reasons for which it is essential to arrive at a definite and final diagnosis in a horse suspected to suffer from infectious anemia.

Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), also known as Swamp Fever, is an infectious disease of horses, donkeys, and mules caused by a virus.

Horses infected with the EIA virus carry it for life. Most infected horses show no symptoms, but they remain infectious, endangering the health of other horses.

Equine anemia is the symptom of an underlying disease that needs to be diagnosed and treated. Identifying Equine Anemia Medically speaking, anemia is defined as a reduction below normal in the concentration of hemoglobin in the blood measured by volume of packed red cells per mL of blood.

Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) is a disease that threatens the world’s horse, donkey and mule populations. Despite testing and measures to eradicate the equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV), more than new cases are identified each year in the U.S.

Equine infectious anemia is a contagious illness that is not limited to horse populations in the United States, but is instead found around the globe. Commonly referred to as “swamp fever,” this disease is aptly named because it occurs most frequently in areas of heightened humidity as well as temperature.

Animal lentivirus systems used as AIDS vaccine models have included simian/human immunodeficiency virus (SHIV) for monkey, simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV) for monkey, equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV) for horse, and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV) for cat.
