This project defined the various respiratory diseases as they are known in Western Australia, and the association between viruses and each of these conditions. The project investigated and attempted to define the role of viruses in the respiratory disease problems. It investigated overseas data reporting a very high rate of infection with EHV2 in tissues of horses with and without disease. It attempted to define any association of EHV2 (and EHV5) with respiratory disease by multiple sampling of individual horses. It provides an improved basis for treatment and management.
