LATEST BEF ADVICE ON EQUINE FLU OUTBREAK - 11.02.19

 

 

The British Equestrian Federation (BEF) continues to closely monitor the recent equine flu outbreak and notes the latest update from the British Horseracing Authority (BHA) outlining that it will decide tonight (Monday 11th February 2019) whether racing can return in Britain on Wednesday.

The BEF can confirm that the advice from our veterinary experts remains that it is not necessary to cancel other equine events at this time subject to local disease status and local veterinary advice. If in doubt consult your local vet.

We urge all owners to be vigilant and follow the guidelines set out on the BEF website and ensure that all vaccinations are up to date. If it has been longer than 6 months since the last vaccination, we recommend that you discuss a booster with your veterinary surgeon.

The BEF has also produced a Q&A giving the latest advice on how owners can keep their horses safe.
