The viral loads of respiratory viruses in nasal secretion of horses which is responsible for respiratory infections is detected to analyses the role of viruses in causing respiratory diseases. It also discusses the symptoms prevalent in the disease which includes occurrence of fever, nasal discharge and coughing.
