Of all the medical advances in the past couple of centuries, the one that might be the most remarkable is also the one we’re most likely to take for granted. Vaccines have changed the way we manage our horses, and how long they can live. A simple injection that lasts a few seconds can protect our families, our pets, our horses, and ourselves from diseases that once meant certain death.
Today we consider it routine to vaccinate horses against a vast array of life-threatening diseases, including rabies; tetanus; botulism; Eastern, Western, and Venezuelan encephalomyelitis; West Nile virus; and Potomac horse fever.
This free report provides the horse owner and caretaker with an overview of the importance of making sure your horse is armed with the most up-to-date vaccines.
