Fever strikes St. Louis-area horses
ST. LOUIS (AP) — University of Missouri veterinarians say an unusually high number of horses in the St. Louis area are coming down with a potentially fatal disease.
Veterinarian Philip Johnson says he has treated six cases of Potomac Horse Fever this summer and is aware of about a dozen additional cases treated in the St. Louis region.
The disease is normally uncommon in the Midwest and is caused by an infectious agent found in snails, swallows, bats and flies that live near rivers.
Johnson says veterinarians are able to test and treat the disease. More information is available from a college clinic at 573-882-3513.
