The first case of Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) has been diagnosed in SC.  EEE is a viral disease that is spread by mosquitoes.  The best way to prevent the spread of EEE is to keep your horses updated on their vaccinations.  Another preventative is to change the water in troughs at least twice a week to discourage mosquito breeding.  Please contact your veterinarian with any questions or concerns.
