Spring Vaccine Schedule- Dutchess South
Today we will be in Wappingers, LaGrangeville, Fishkill, Beekman, Stormville, Hopewell Junction, Poughquag, & Pleasant Valley
Vaccines protect horses from disease by increasing circulating levels of antibodies in their blood. Most vaccines require two doses a few weeks apart when given for the first time. Thereafter, boosters are required to maintain immunity each year. We recommend that all horses are vaccinated against Eastern Equine Encephalomyelitis (EEE), Western Equine Encephalomyelitis (WEE), Tetanus, West Nile Virus and Rabies. Depending on travel, management, reproductive use, or outbreaks of disease, vaccination against Influenza, Herpes Virus 1 & 4, Strangles, Lyme Disease, Leptospirosis, and Botulism, should be added to this core group. Please remember that a horse’s immune system becomes weaker as they age, making older horses more susceptible, not less, to infection and increasing the need for proper vaccination.
Please schedule appointments in advance! Payment is expected at the time of service.
