Equine Vaccinations

Regular vaccination of horses, ponies is an important part of their primary care to prevent some serious, and potentially life-threatening, diseases.

Infectious Disease Control Programs for the control of infectious diseases are important components of good managerial practices directed toward maximizing the health, productivity and performance of horses.

Infectious disease in an individual horse, or outbreaks of infection within a group of horses, occurs when a sufficient quantity of an infectious agent overcomes the resistance acquired through prior natural exposure to the disease agent or through vaccination.

Vaccination alone, in the absence of good management practices directed at infection control, is not sufficient to prevent infectious disease.

Vaccination serves to minimize the risks of infection but cannot prevent disease in all circumstances.

Always consult your veterinary surgeon about vaccinations for your horse or pony.
