EQUINE GRASS SICKNESS SURVEILLANCE SCHEME
Welcome to the Equine Grass Sickness Surveillance Scheme website. Equine grass sickness (EGS) is a debilitating and often fatal disease affecting grazing horses, ponies and donkeys, which was first described in eastern Scotland in the early 1900s. EGS occurs predominantly, but not exclusively, in northern European countries and Great Britain has the highest incidence of EGS worldwide. Gathering information about cases of EGS greatly improves our understanding of the prevalence of this devastating disease within Great Britain.

Please let us know about any cases of EGS that you are aware of.
