Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

If a horse has survived AHS dikkop are they still at risk for the rest of the season or do they have some extra immunity?

It appears that horses that survive will have high immunity to the serotype that it was infected with - there are 9 different serotypes of AHS but we seldon get more that two at ony one place.
