Rotavirus is a highly infectious, non-enveloped RNA virus which is a major cause of diarrhea in foals worldwide. The severity of the disease depends on the age of onset, immune system of the foal, virulence of the virus, and magnitude of exposure. The disease is transmitted through the foals exposure to manure of infected foals. Particles of the virus can survive in the environment for up to 9 months.
