On October 19, a positive Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) result was confirmed by the Canadian Food Inspection Agency’s (CFIA) national reference laboratory for a horse located on premises in Lacombe County, Alberta.

The animal had been sampled by the CFIA to comply with export conditions and no clinical signs of the disease were reported.

A CFIA investigation is currently underway and as per program policy, a quarantine has been placed on the infected animal and its on-premises contacts.

Initial reports indicate that there are several equine animals on the premises. The quarantine will remain until all follow-up testing has been completed and the positive horse is euthanized.
