A Place Called Hope

Between the lead cases we have gotten in, and now the influx in Rodenticide Secondary Poisoning cases, we are in battle over here at APCH. Admitted a Great tHorned Owl from a golf course who was a classic case of rodenticide poisoning, and she died after one grand seizure. (This Golf Course DID NOT use rodenticides, but a neighborhood surrounds it) This picture was after she was flipped over since she was discovered face down after a seizure. She is free from her agony, but as we examined her body, we found a brood patch. This means she left an active nest of babies. Long story short, we arrived just in time before crows invaded nest. No dad present, and even if he was, he only drops food off to his family and does not sit on the babies or rip and tear food for little mouths. We presume he has also succumb to the rodenticides since there still has been no sighting of him. We retrieved two young owlets who we feared also ingested poison. They are still alive but one of them was in crisis and is currently guarded. We also took in a Red Tailed Hawk from Madison who responded well to the Vitamin K therapy and is going to survive her secondary poisoning. We got her in time to save her. Often that is not the case. We admitted two more secondary poisoning cases just yesterday... a Coopers Hawk from New Haven and a Red Tailed Hawk from New Britain. Both displaying symptoms and experiencing micro seizures. It may be too late for these two. Time will tell.
PLEASE: STOP USING RODENTICIDES
Your quick fix solution has a long term effect and kills many non-targeted victims. NO, it is NEVER SAFE and your exterminator and the company selling the product is LYING when they tell you it is. It is toxic and it is deadly otherwise it would not kill the mice or rats you are targeting. YES, some need repeat doses so the single dose ingested won't likely kill anything, but over a few doses, it builds up to a level that is deadly and will eventually kill whatever, whomever has ingested it. This must stop but since so many stores still carry this deadly product on their shelves and so many people don't stop to think about the bigger picture, we fear we will continue to fight this battle. We can't tell you how many times we have heard, "I don't want to touch the dead mouse or rat" or "I don't want to see the dead mouse or rat" therefore rodenticide is chosen. If you have the power to take those lives away, then it is on you to do so humanely and responsibly. Find an alternative to poison. Do exclusion work, use a Live trap and relocate, or a Snap Trap, or RatZapper. Our favorite rodent control is to put up Owl Nesting Boxes. I know of someone who collected used ferret bedding to spread near active rodent areas and the mice evacuated. We owe it to our wildlife to make better choices where we are not causing more damage. We at APCH are doing all we can, but we need your help in spreading the anti-rodenticide message. Please alert your friends and family. Thank you for caring and as always thank you for sharing.

Virginia Horses Test Positive for Equine Herpesvirus-1

~ Horses are unrelated to the Culpeper farm where the virus was detected 10 days ago ~



The Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ (VDACS) has confirmed a diagnosis of Equine Herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1) on a second farm in Virginia. On August 15 the department announced an unrelated finding of EHV-1 on a farm in Culpeper County. That farm continues to be under quarantine.



This new case originated from a small private pleasure horse farm in King William County. Out of the 4 horses that showed clinical signs compatible with Equine Herpesvirus Myeloencephalopathy (EHM), 2 horses tested positive and both of them were euthanized.



This farm is under quarantine and all exposed horses are being monitored twice daily for fever (temperature over 101.50o F) and other clinical signs.



No horses have been on or off the premises for 1 year. There are no horses near this farm that have been exposed, and there is no association between this farm and any of the horses or people at the first quarantined farm, including equine professionals. While there are vaccines against the EHV-1 virus, the vaccines are ineffective against the neurologic strain.



Dr. Charles Broaddus, State Veterinarian with VDACS, says there is no cause for alarm concerning the general horse population in Virginia. “Equine Herpes Virus-1 (EHV-1) is a virus that is present in the environment and found in most horses all over the world,” he said. "Horses are typically exposed to the virus at a young age with no serious side effects. A large percentage of horses carry the virus with no clinical signs for the remainder of their lives. Horses can spontaneously shed it in their nasal secretions. Rarely this causes exposed horses to develop the neurologic form of the disease.” He added that practicing good biosecurity every day is the best way to minimize disease spread.



The Equine Disease Communications Center at equinediseasecc.org/biosecurity has more information on best practices for disease prevention in horses and VDACS has more information on EHV-1 here. vdacs.virginia.gov/animals-equine-herpes-virus.shtml. Horse owners may also contact VDACS’ Office of Veterinary Services at 804.786.2483.

The Wine & Ride was a great success on Saturday! First, Thank you to Ben Bilko and his staff at Temple Hall for assistance with parking trailers and for maintaining the trails in top shape. Of course, Thank You to Doug Fabbioli and everyone at Fabbiolo Vineyards for converting their front field into a wonderful horse picnic area and for serving outstanding wines. Thanks also to Michelle McIntyre of The Dinner Belle Catering for providing delicious box lunches. This is a small example of how rural businesses benefit by collaboration. LCEA would like to see Loudoun become an equestrian destination for trail riding on multi-user traiils connecting parkland, breweries, vineyards, B&B's, and other private and public land.

What a difference a little chiropractic adjust makes. Thank you Kelly Foltman..... M&M felt FANTASTIC!!!!
WONDERFUL, BLISSFUL 22 mile training ride with Rebecca Bianchi and Nancy Coats Kain. LOTS of steep ups and downs in Michaux State Forest. For the first time since all her ovary issues began (1 1/2 yrs), M&M felt like she was "HAVING FUN, no HAVING A BLAST". She was flying down the trail, eager to move out. At the end of 22 miles, she did not look like she had done a thing. I am so happy I could cry!!!!!!!!

Equine Herpes Virus

On April 2, a horse exhibiting neurologic signs was transported to the isolation facility at Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center in Leesburg, Virginia from Anne Arundel County, Maryland, and it was euthanized shortly after arrival. On April 4, the Virginia Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services’ (VDACS) Animal Health Lab in Warrenton, Virginia confirmed a diagnosis of Equine Herpesvirus-1 (EHV-1).



The Marion DuPont Scott Equine Medical Center employed strict biosecurity measures and disinfection upon arrival and during the horse’s hospitalization. As a result, no horses in Virginia were exposed. The Equine Medical Center is operating normally.



For more information on EHV-1, see http://www.vdacs.virginia.gov/animals-equine-herpes-virus.shtml or contact VDACS’ Office of

Equine Herpes Virus (EHV-1) infection in horses can cause respiratory disease, abortion in mares, neonatal foal death, and/or neurologic disease. The neurologic form of EHV-1 is called Equine Herpes Virus Myeloencephalopathy (EHM).
