PART 116 EQUINE INFECTIOUS ANEMIA CONTROL
SECTION 116.10 TESTING OF ILLINOIS EQUIDAE
Section 116.10 Testing of Illinois Equidae
When a single reactor is disclosed on an official test within Illinois, owners are required to submit all equidae within a one and one half mile radius of the reactor for an equine infectious anemia (EIA) test within three months. In the case of multiple reactors, all equidae within a three mile radius of the reactors shall be tested for EIA within three months. Veterinarians employed by the Department will do the testing at no cost to the owner. If the owner wishes to have his or her private veterinarian conduct the test, the State will not pay the private veterinarian to do the testing but will waive the laboratory fee if the sample is submitted to a Department operated laboratory. A retest of any remaining equidae on the premises where a reactor was disclosed and either shipped to slaughter or euthanized shall be conducted by the Department not less than six months nor more than one year after the reactor has left the premises.
