There is no way to prevent EPM as no vaccine exists. The best way to reduce the risk of your horse contracting the disease is to minimize exposure to opossum feces. Risk factors include:

  • All age groups may be affected, however, EPM is more common in horses 1 - 7 years of age
  • Presence of opossums
  • Previously infected horses on premises
  • Summer and fall seasons (winter has fewer cases)
  • Stress - including shipping or recent illness
  • Wooded terrain near pastures
  • Feed and hay accessible to opossums
