By: Sheila McCrea - Wednesday, October 5, 2022

The Indiana State Board of Animal Health confirmed the second and third Eastern equine encephalitis (EEE)-positive horses in Northeast Indiana in 2022.

An unvaccinated 15-year-old mare in LaGrange County tested positive for EEE. She began showing signs of the illness with a 104-degree fever, but responded to treatment. Within 24 hours, however, she was down and did not have normal reflexes and was subsequently euthanized.

An unvaccinated 14-year-old mare in Kosciusko County tested positive for EEE, as well.
