The Equine Disease Communication Center (EDCC) has launched a mobile app version of its online information system to make real-time alerts for infectious diseases available for all parts of the horse industry on your smart phone.
The EDCC is a reliable source for not only accessing disease threats, but also defining progression of horse disease events.

The EDCC Disease Alerts app connects directly to the disease alert page, making it easy for users to filter information by disease, location and date. Users have quick access to the disease risk information necessary to make decisions about travel and biosecurity. The app also provides access to disease fact sheets with helpful information about diagnosis and treatment.
“The EDCC is a reliable source for not only accessing disease threats, but also defining progression of disease events,” said E.S. “Rusty” Ford, equine operations consultant, Kentucky Office of State Veterinarian. “The greatest benefit is reliability of the information posted enabling us and others opportunity to develop and implement disease-mitigating strategies.”
