The Equine Disease Communication Center (EDCC) is an industry-driven initiative which works to protect horses and the horse industry from the threat of infectious diseases in North America. The communication system is designed to seek and report real time information about disease outbreaks similar to how the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) alerts the human population about diseases in people. Reports of infectious and vector-borne disease cases are received from a state veterinarian, state animal health official or attending veterinarian are confirmed and formed into comprehensive alerts available online, through social media, and in our app.
The first priority of the EDCC is to protect and improve the health of horses in North America. Real-time information on infectious disease alerts, quarantines, and regulations are vital to helping horse owners keep their animals safe and healthy. Infectious disease alerts have a profound and lasting effect on local economy and can result in millions lost in revenue due to horse loss, quarantine, cancelled events, resources allocated to containing outbreaks, and decreased horse movement. The EDCC works to provide up-to-date, completely verified, and easily accessible information that is comprehensible to equestrians in every facet of the industry. In this way the EDCC helps to decrease the economic impact of infectious diseases on the $122 billion horse industry.

Important Resource for Horse Owners!
Just learned about this info resource at the USEF convention. As long as the Veterinary community contributes transparent reporting data ASAP, this can provide critical/timely assistance for decisions on horse travel. Outbreak hype inflates owner fears, but factual reporting data allows sound decisions to be made. Thanks USEF!
Must have for all horse owners
This app is an essential for anyone in the industry
Supreme. Exactly what I need. Thanks!
