We invite you to schedule a consultation with one of our veterinarians to develop a vaccination program for your horse. We follow the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) recommendations for core vaccines. These include:
- Eastern/Western Equine Encephalomyelitis (EEE/WEE)
- West Nile Virus (WNV)
- (our 6-way vaccine contains EEE, WEE, Rhino, Flu, WNV and Tetanus)
Vaccines that are strongly recommended especially for our geographical location are:
- Equine Influenza
- Potomac Horse Fever (PHF)
Risk-based Vaccinations (depending on your horses schedule and travel)
- Strangles (Streptococcus equi)
Due to duration of immunity, most horses in our area require the 6-way vaccine and Potomac Horse Fever twice yearly due to the length of the bug season in Ohio; howver, we recommend those horses that are only vaccinated once a year have this performed in the early spring before the mosquitoes are prevalent. Rabies is given once yearly, either in the spring or the fall.
Please do not attempt to administer these vaccinations until you consult with one of our staff veterinarians.
