Equine Immunization

You may have been made aware of the numerous outbreaks of influenza and 'rhino' or equine herpes virus.  These outbreaks can often be prevented, or at least minimized, by proper vaccination.  In the past few years, the veterinary community has learned an enormous amount regarding the equine immune system and vaccination.  More efficacious vaccines are being produced. 

At Fox Run Equine Center, we strive to keep up-to-date on immunology and immunization.  We recommend primarily single disease vaccines rather than an all-in-one shot.  This gives better protection for you and your horse, as well as fewer reactions.

The following vaccines are recommended:

  • Eastern equine encephalitis
  • Western equine encephalitis
  • Tetanus toxoid
  • West Nile Virus
  • Rabies
  • Rhinopneumonitis
  • Influenza
  • Strangles- Streptococcus equi

Other vaccines are optional:

  • Botulism
  • Potomac horse fever
  • Equine viral arteritis
  • Rotavirus

We use vaccines that are the most efficacious, have the fewest reactions, and are technologically advanced.  Vaccination should be twice per year for some vaccines, and annually for others.  Please ask about protocols for foals.  We offer the less protective killed vaccines for horses with little exposure to outside animals, and recombinant or modified live vaccines (more protective) for those in boarding barns and with exposure to other horses at shows, rides, etc.

Showing and trail riding should be fun, without worrying about your horse getting sick!

Where your horse's health is always our
top priority.

Testimonial

Dr. Burks came out on a weekend when my horse had colic. He was very thorough and was great with my horse as well as decent conversation and didn't make me feel badly when asking questions. Thank you for looking at my boy with such short notice!
