The authors thank the equine practitioners of Ontario for their collaboration in identifying the outbreaks, Dr. Janet Daly from The Animal Health Trust for providing guidance for SRH testing and supplying the equine influenza antiserum for technique validation, and Dr. Hugh Townsend (University of Saskatchewan) for providing sera for validation of the SRH test. This study would not have been possible without the generous support of Boehringer Ingelheim (Canada) Ltd., Vetmedica, Burlington, Ontario, the EP Taylor Equine Research Fund, and the Ontario Racing Commission.
