Like dogs and cats, horses are susceptible to a wide range of bacterial and viral diseases, and just like dogs and cats these bacteria and viruses can be kept at bay with diligent vaccination. There are a number of vaccines that should be considered for your horse. At the Tri-Municipal Veterinary Clinic we recommend vaccinating all horses for Eastern and Western Equine Encephalomyelitis (sleeping sickness), West Nile Virus, Tetanus and Rabies. In addition, for horses that travel and show, we further recommend herpes virus, influenza virus and strangles. Call the Tri-Municipal Veterinary Clinic today and our animal health care team can help personalize your horse’s vaccination program.
