It's Herd Health Season

If you have not yet booked your horse’s spring vaccinations, we would like to encourage all of you to start thinking about your equine wellness and health care needs for the year. We would suggest getting started well before show season begins, to avoid any vaccine related stiffness or sore necks.

The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) recommends a number of core vaccines that they strongly recommend all horses should be protected with. These include vaccines against Tetanus, Rabies, West Nile Virus, and Eastern/Western Equine Encephalitis.


Prevention is always better!


Influenza, Herpes, Strangles, Potomac Horse Fever, and Botulism vaccines are all also offered, but are considered elective and optional vaccines depending on the horse's exposure or potential risk to these pathogens. Talk with your herd health veterinarian about your horses’ individual needs for these vaccines.
