Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA)

What is Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA)?

Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) is a viral disease affecting only members of the equidae family (horses, ponies, zebras, mules, and donkeys). There is no vaccine or treatment for the disease.   Infection is often in-apparent and results in a lifelong carrier state if the horse survives the acute phase of the infection.  
EIA is found widely throughout the world. There is no evidence that EIA is a threat to human health.  EIA is a reportable animal disease in all states.
