The epidemiology is not fully understood, but it is believed that transmission occurs by ingestion of faecal material from wild or domestic animals. This article describes the clinical signs and diagnosis of equine proliferative enteropathy and how to monitor a herd, together with possible treatment and prevention protocols.
