INTERIM UPDATE TO HBLB CODES OF PRACTICE ON CEM – JANUARY 2009
The United States Department of Agriculture has reported the isolation of Taylorella
equigenitalis, the cause of Contagious Equine Metritis (CEM), from multiple horses in
multiple states of USA and in Canada. As a result, the Horserace Betting Levy
Board’s (HBLB) Codes of Practice sub committee make the following
recommendations for the 2009 season:

• All mares imported into the participating countries (France, Germany, Great
Britain, Ireland and Italy), who have been in North America (USA and Canada)
since 1st January 2008 are considered ‘high risk’.

• Two clitoral swabs (fossa and sinuses) should be taken at least seven days
apart and an endometrial swab taken during an oestrus period prior to
covering.

• Full culture results (aerobic and microaerophilic) should be obtained from an
HBLB Approved Laboratory (GB) or other National Approved Laboratories in
France, Germany, Ireland or Italy.

• Swab results should be obtained before covering any mare that has been in
North America after 1st January 2008.
