Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

My horse was diagnosed with AHS (dikkop) on 17/1/08. The swelling has since gone down and his temperature, pulse and appetite is back to normal. Other horses on the same farm are now dislpaying the same symptoms. Can my horse be re-infected?

It is unlikely that your horse will be re-infected at this stage as he should have good immunity to the strain circulating in the area. It is interesting to note that thereis usually only one, and rarely 2 strains of AHS in the same area at the same time.
