Question: Hi Dr. Harv, In light of the recent EIA cases near Prince Albert do you think people will be more apt to have their horses tested? Do you perform the test & does the sample still have to go to Ontario for the results? Thanks :)
Answer: EIA testing is done in Saskatoon with a 2 day turnaround. You test no earlier than 30 days prior to when you will be crossing the border.

CPVS recently tested 2 horses at the request of their owners for Swamp Fever. The horses were from distinctly separate premises, both were displaying suspect symptoms/behaviour. Both horses tested NEGATIVE for swamp fever. We are pursuing other avenues of investigation at this time.
CPVS would like to thank these owners for being proactive in the management of their herds.
