The Arizona Department of Agriculture has lifted a quarantine tied a contagious livestock virus.
The quarantine was imposed in January on three properties in Santa Cruz County in southern Arizona after two horses were confirmed to have Vesicular Stomatitis Virus.
The disease causes blister-like sores on the mouths, noses and sometimes feet of infected animals. The virus mainly affects horses and to a lesser extent cattle and swine
The state veterinarian, Dr. Perry Durham, said the last horse is free of symptoms and that means the short outbreak is now over.
According to the state agency, the federal Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service lists no cases of VSV in the country.
