    Equine disease events resulting from international horse movements

    M. Dominguez, S. Münstermann, I. de Guindos & P. Timoney

    Equine Veterinary Journal, 48, 641-653
    September 2016
    DOI: 10.1111/evj.12523

    The global increase in international horse movements, if not appropriately regulated and supervised by competent veterinary authorities and respective equine industry partners, could potentially lead to increased global spread of infectious equine diseases. Appropriate mitigation measures and compliance with OIE import recommendations for specific diseases can significantly reduce this risk.

    The recommendations proposed under the HHP approach take into account the mitigation measures identified by this review as important factors in preventing pathogen introduction and spread.

    Pictorial guide to the diagnosis of glanders

    Edited by U. Wernery, D. Altemann, J. Kinne & R. Wernery
    World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE)

    Glanders is a contagious and life-threatening disease of horses, donkeys and mules caused by Burkholderia mallei which can be transmitted to humans. Susceptibility to glanders has been demonstrated in wild felines, camels, bears, wolves and dogs.

    This brochure on glanders shows valuable images of clinical signs, post mortem lesions as well as histology and microbiological pictures. These images will serve as a useful tool to veterinarians and other interested people in understanding and diagnosing this zoonosis. It may also help to eradicate the disease from our globe.

    High health, high performance (HHP) horses: risk mitigation strategies and establishment of specific health requirements

    World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE)

    This document demonstrates how the continuous observance of the HHP health and biosecurity practices allow for simplification of the list of diseases for which HHP horses should be certified with respect to their temporary importation for competition purposes.

    The HHP risk mitigation strategies rely on four pillars:

    • Biosecurity measures
    • Health management practices
    • Specific health requirements
    • Contingency planning.
