What is EIA?
Equine infectious anemia (EIA), also known as “swamp fever,” is a viral disease of horses and other equids (i.e. donkeys, mules, and zebras) that causes recurrent episodes of fever, lethargy and destruction of red blood cells (anemia) and platelets (thrombocytopenia)... (more)
With neither cure nor vaccine in existence, veterinarians and researchers must
supervise the equine infectious anemia virus closely to avoid widespread disease.
