Next steps



Which of the following steps might be appropriate for the consulting vet to take?  


(1) Phone the EAD hotline and/or your district veterinarian, as clinical signs are consistent with Hendra virus

(2) Head out to see the case – use full Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and collect samples for Hendra virus testing

(3) Head out to see the case – use some PPE, gloves and disposable overalls

(4) Head out to see the case – do not use PPE as this is unlikely to be a Hendra case this far south and in a horse without history of travel
