Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Hi, I would like to know if donkeys are prone to AHS, and also if they can be carriers?

Donkeys do get affected by AHS but not to the extent that horses do. This season I have had 6 reports in donkeys but not confirmed with tests. It is assumed that donkeys do pass on the AHS virus when in a vireamic state.
