West Nile Virus Update

On August 22, 2002, Dr. Brent Robbins met with the Centers for Disease Control to discuss the West Nile Virus (WNV) in Louisiana. The CDC and the LVMA are conducting a survey of veterinarians in the Slidell area regarding WNV. These veterinarians will also be asked to take blood samples from dogs and cats to check for WNV since the Slidell/Covington area is the epicenter for outbreaks in people. Four to six months from now, the CDC will provide information from the testing and surveys. Mike Bunning, DVM, is an epidemiologist working on this program. If you have any questions, please contact the LVMA office at (800) 524-2996 or (225) 928-5862 or Dr. Brent Robbins at (985) 264-5466.

Sincerely,

Ginger Guttner
Association Coordinator
