For the first time this year, Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) has been reported in the Prince Albert area.
All five cases were reported to the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) in October.
Alex McIsaac, a disease control veterinarian with the CFIA, said the news should not cause people to panic.
"Four of these cases were all linked, so there was one source farm if you will, and then animals were sold out of there," he said.
