Piro Free Horses: a needle in the haystack?

In some parts of the world, equine piroplasmosis (EP) is endemic, routine, even commonplace. In Portugal a large percentage of Lusitano horses become infected within their first year of life, while they are being raised in the fields. Piroplasmosis is caused by one of two protozoan parasites: Theileria equi or Babesia caballi, and is transmitted to horses when they are bitten by an infected tick. This disease is subject to regulatory action in parts of the world – so if you are looking to buy a Lusitano Horse and you plan to export outside Europe, understanding this topic is a MUST, because horses that test positive for piroplasmosis antibodies cannot be exported to the majority of countries outside Europe.

How can Lusitano World help?

Lusitano World is especially sensitive to this topic, as our team receives requests from clients all over the world. We decided early on in the development of our horse sales business to proactively create a strategy to provide an easy and quick solution for our international clients – Lusitano World has gathered a significant database of horses already tested negative for piroplamosis and each day we seek more horses. This assures that your horse hunting process will not only be less stressful and more effective, but also that upon finding the perfect equine partner, it is unlikely you will be disappointed during the pre-export blood tests.
