EHV-4 is respiratory pathogen of domestic horses associated with outbreaks of respiratory disease. The present study was conducted to diagnose an EHV-4 infection among domestic horses using polymerase chain reaction. Total 12 nasal swabs were collected from horses showing symptoms of respiratory disease, unthrifyness and fever. DNA was extracted from all samples and it was subjected to polymerase chain reaction for identification of EHV-4 DNA in samples. Four samples found positive for having EHV-4 infection revealed single compact band of 189 bp. PCR has been proved as an effective, less time consuming and sensitive as well as specific diagnostic test for diagnosis of EHV-4 infection.
