MADISON, Wis. — The state is advising against the importing of livestock from certain parts of New Mexico after a viral disease was found in horses there.
The disease is vesicular stomatitis, or VS. It resembles Foot-and-Mouth, primarily affecting horses, cattle, swine and occasionally sheep and goats.
It causes fever and blisters in the mouth, nostrils, hooves and teats. The animal recovers in three to four days.
