The Kentucky state veterinarian’s office reported today (Oct. 30) that the fourth and fifth cases of West Nile virus have been identified in the state. Four of the five cases this year have survived and one was euthanatized. None of the affected horses was vaccinated.


The most recent cases were an 8-year-old Quarter Horse mare in Daviess County and a 9-year-old pony gelding in Nelson County. Both are still alive. Taylor, Clark, and Mason Counties have also had one West Nile virus case apiece this year. One of those affected was a Quarter Horse, and the other two were Tennessee Walking Horses.
