3. equine coital exanthema
4. equine herpes virus 1, 4

contagious equine metritis (3)

1. highly contagious bacterial infection carried by the stallion
2. causes acute endometritis → interrupts fertility
3. self-limiting infection

Equine viral arteritis:
1. symptoms
2. spread?
3. effect on reproduction

1. fever, respiratory problems, eye inflammation, edema in the legs & underbelly of mares, edema in the testes of stallions
2. direct contact through semen
3. can go to term

equine coital exanthema:
1. also known as...
2. symptoms of mares
3. symptoms of stallions

1. equine herpes 3
2. small fluid-filled blisters which can open & become inflamed
3. lesions confined to glans penis

most common of the equine herpes

equine herpes 3 → equine coital exanthema

Equine herpes 1 (3)

1. development of respiratory disease
2. abortion (single or abortion storms) → weeks or months from infection to abortion
3. fatal neonatal illness

equine herpes 4 (2)

1. may cause sporadic abortion (no "storms")
2. signs are similar to equine herpes 1

1. leptospirosis (common in dogs; rare in cats)
2. brucellosis (more common in dogs than cats)
3. herpes (common in dogs & cats)
