Equine Infectious Anemia (Swamp Fever)

Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), also known as Swamp Fever, is a viral disease of horses, donkeys and mules around the world.  Closely related to the Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV), this virus affects horses’ immune systems; however, it has never been reported to pose a threat to human health.  There is no cure.  While most infected horses don’t show any symptoms, they remain carriers for life, thereby jeopardizing the health of other horses.
