Has Your Horse Received His Fall Vaccinations Yet?
As a horse owner, the good thing about the colder season is knowing you won't have to deal with as many insect-related issues as during the spring and summer months. The cold weather, however, brings different challenges to your horse’s health such as respiratory viruses — which is why fall vaccines/boosters usually include inoculations against influenza and the respiratory form of herpesvirus (rhinopneumonitis).
If your horse has yet to receive their fall vaccinations this year, contact your veterinarian today and work with them to determine the optimal vaccine protocol for your animal. Based on their situation, your horse may need additional specific risk-based vaccinations and your horse doctor will be able to provide accurate information on what products to use and why.
