Vaccinating your horse to prevent disease.
Vaccinations should be appropriate for the location of farm and desired needs of facility and horses.Vaccinations are only effective if they are being used properly. In order to find the proper vaccines for your house consult your barn manager and veterinarian to find out which diseases are most frequent in your area and which your horse is at most risk of contracting. Also if you know your horse will be traveling and in contact with other horses you will need to know which areas you will be traveling to and for how long to be able to properly vaccinate. Although vaccinations do not completely eliminate the risk of disease they are a good step in the right direction for the prevention of diseases.
