|Abstract||A serological survey was conducted to compare the seroprevalence of antibodies against equine arteritis virus (EAV) in horses residing in the United States (California; n=364) with that of imported horses (from various countries; n=226). Serum samples were collected from each imported horse and from up to 20 horses on each operation. Samples were tested against EAV using a serum neutralization test. Results show that 1.9% of resident horses and 18.6% of imported horses were seropositive to EAV, including 16.1% of imported stallions. Results indicate that the EAV seroprevalence of horses residing in California is considerably lower than that of imported horses, including imported stallions.|
