West Nile Virus

It’s that time of year – when mosquitoes are out and the potential for West Nile Virus infections are here. Because Washington state lost a number of horses to this disease last year and it is preventable, we need to get the word out. With our wet Spring, the environment may provide more than the usual amount of mosquito breeding habitat this year!
