Equine Viral Arteritis (EVA) Article Update

Equine Viral Arteritis (EVA) Article - the spike virus

The Equine Arteritis Virus (EAV) is a “spike virus” which shares some similarities with the Coronavirus

Following the USA’s multi-state outbreak of Equine Viral Arteritis (EVA) in 2006, Jos Mottershead and Kathy St. Martin of, LLC wrote an article about the virus with world-renowned expert on the subject Dr. Peter Timoney. The article became recognized as a reliable source written in plain language, which helped both disseminate information and eliminate many of the myths and fears that revolved around the disease and its management.

We have recently been providing equine reproduction articles for the “Breeding News for Sport Horses” – an official voice of the World Breeding Federation for Sport Horses (WBFSH) – and again with Dr. Timoney we have made some minor updates to the article, reflecting scientific advancements in the intervening years in order for it to be presented in that publication. This Equine Viral Arteritis (EVA) article now appears on our website at – it carries information pertinent to both stallion and mare owners, so is worth a read!
