i agree with you. the current vaccines do not cure the disease, they only reduce the effects on the individual. The disease can still spread and still mutate, just like the Flu. The only cure for hoof in mouth disease is to stop licking horses feet after they come back in the barn,Your concern is appreciated. My personal feeling is that we need to be prepared in case of such an event. Keeping vigilant is one thing; preparing for what could happen shows insight. What I'm not suggesting is gloom and doom. People need to understand that we're not out of the forest until there is a cure for this sickness and what could occur.
For example, I've not yet seen a cure for hoof & mouth, have you?
