Colorado issues new requirement for NM livestock

LAKEWOOD, Colo. (AP) — Colorado has issued a new requirement for horses entering the state from New Mexico, where 11 premises have been quarantined due to a virus.

State veterinary officials said Friday that health certificates for horses, mules, cattle, bison, sheep, goats, swine and camelids from New Mexico now must include a statement from a veterinarian stating that no signs of vesicular stomatitis have been found in the animals and that the animals didn’t come from a premise that was quarantined for the disease.

Vesicular stomatitis can cause painful sores in infected animals. It is believed to be spread through insects that migrate along river valleys.
