Rabies because it is common in area wildlife WNV as when infected is more serious than influenza, WE

6/10/2009 2:45:57 AM

side effects of the vaccines for the remaining list outweigh the benefit to vaccinating

6/8/2009 11:11:05 PM

RV #1;hard to choose between WNV&EEE; mosuitos VERY bad on my farm all summer.

6/8/2009 7:03:35 PM

horses that are only trail ridden and are out to pasture need WN and Rabies more than others.

6/8/2009 6:23:41 PM

The others don´t occur in my country.

6/8/2009 4:41:36 PM

African Horse Sickness too, when you live in Africa!

6/8/2009 3:52:19 PM

While I vaccinate for all, these two are deadly in my area.

6/8/2009 1:35:44 PM

no cure if horse is infected

6/8/2009 1:00:54 PM

my horses don't travel so I don't have to worry much

6/8/2009 7:25:24 AM

Tetanus and rhino b/c i've had both at one time

6/7/2009 10:20:31 PM

could be life threatening

6/7/2009 10:06:27 PM

Because these are communicable diseases that humans can catch

6/7/2009 9:26:46 PM

Most die from WNV if they are exposed

6/7/2009 8:20:56 PM

Both vaccines are very effective and the diseases are fatal

6/7/2009 8:12:34 PM

And tetanus.

6/7/2009 7:42:51 PM

I vaccinate against rabies, tetnus, SS, WN, Herpes, and flu

6/7/2009 6:50:19 PM

most common

6/7/2009 5:07:19 PM

most prevalent in our area, reactions to WNV

6/7/2009 5:01:55 PM

In local area

6/7/2009 2:21:43 PM

Mosquito-carrying disease; lots of mosquitoes in Florida!

6/7/2009 1:43:40 PM

most easily spread

6/7/2009 1:27:45 PM

chances of horse getting WNV or EEE/WEE/VEE greater due to huge mosquito population in Wisc.

6/7/2009 10:50:22 AM

I'm interested

6/6/2009 11:53:39 PM

In the country, we are more liable to have rabid animals, plus it's common for horses to get flu.

6/6/2009 11:12:02 PM

Live out west where rabies does not seem to be an issue, but we do get a heavy mosquito season!!!

6/6/2009 11:08:50 PM

they seem to be the bigger threat in the area

6/6/2009 10:49:23 PM

Most prevalent in our area.

6/6/2009 8:47:29 PM

They are very common infections that are deadly.

6/6/2009 8:43:29 PM

Almost 100% deadly

6/6/2009 8:01:34 PM

i am in mosquito prone area for 6-8 months. rabies is #3--all of these will most likely cause death

6/6/2009 5:37:24 PM

in my area mosquitoes never go away, hence mosquito born disease is everthreatening

6/6/2009 4:17:02 PM

1 is required in my state for a traveling horse

6/6/2009 3:40:18 PM

in Africa we vaccinate for rabies tetnus and African Horse sickness

6/6/2009 12:30:07 PM

You can't expect me to pick just two.

6/6/2009 11:21:39 AM

I am in a mosquito populated area

6/6/2009 10:28:48 AM

Where is tetanus? That's my #1 answer.

6/6/2009 7:40:03 AM

I lost a yearling to sleeping sickness and all animals so be protected from rabies

6/6/2009 5:44:46 AM

Because I live in Florida. Rabies and Tetanus are very important, also.

6/6/2009 3:50:44 AM

they are all important however eee and rabies are the most dangerous to humans

6/5/2009 11:29:42 PM

also important is tetnus

6/5/2009 10:40:45 PM

Geesh you forgot to list Tetanus, that would've been # 1

6/5/2009 10:07:56 PM

No cure for either

6/5/2009 6:52:16 PM

I'm in Florida--Mosquitos!!

6/5/2009 6:20:58 PM

100% fatal

6/5/2009 2:20:03 PM

these have the lowest survival rates of the several diseases addressed.

6/5/2009 2:05:39 PM

They are carried by mosquitos and it's impossible to keep mosquitos out of the barn and pasture.

6/5/2009 12:58:42 PM

Most common of the most deadly diseases. Horses can recover from flu,

6/5/2009 11:42:01 AM

My horse gets all the shots recommended in our area. Including strangles vaccination. He shows

6/5/2009 11:33:52 AM

These seem most likely to occur

6/5/2009 10:45:31 AM

These two would be the most prevalent in our area, although no cases have been reported in our count

6/5/2009 10:43:48 AM

most likely to die from

6/5/2009 9:22:02 AM

I am unable to pick just two. living in the south you need eee,wee,rabies, flu and wnv

6/5/2009 9:05:16 AM

But we give them all!

6/5/2009 7:59:12 AM

rabies will kill us eee can to

6/4/2009 11:20:54 PM

they are the most prevalent on farms and ranches and are new to our area of the US

6/4/2009 11:04:09 PM

the most important on my list is tetanus. It should be on yours!

6/4/2009 11:00:45 PM

Lots of mosquitos and rabies is zoonotic

6/4/2009 10:31:59 PM

2 things I have no control over to minimize risk

6/4/2009 10:30:06 PM

found most in my area

6/4/2009 9:56:01 PM

what about tetnus? It depends on where you live.

6/4/2009 9:27:56 PM

what about tetnas

6/4/2009 9:14:50 PM

If horses never leave home or come in contact with others, herpes and flu aren't as deadly

6/4/2009 9:10:38 PM

living in the desert helps control west nile and rabies is on the rise in the desert

6/4/2009 7:21:13 PM

These are the 2 which apply to my horses

6/4/2009 7:03:42 PM

Why is tetanus not on the list? That is the most important one of all!!!!

6/4/2009 6:52:09 PM

I give WNV and tetanus

6/4/2009 6:45:25 PM

Tetanus is the most easily contracted

6/4/2009 6:27:20 PM

potential for death

6/4/2009 5:25:59 PM

rabies and EEE/WEE/VEE because both are deadly, and zoonotic.

6/4/2009 4:31:07 PM

Low or no occurrences of other issues in our geographic area

6/4/2009 4:29:47 PM

There have been very few cases of West nile or rabies,but prevention is key .

6/4/2009 4:18:02 PM

no cure for rabies and sleeping sickness has a high mortality rate

6/4/2009 4:05:02 PM

Easy to spread

6/4/2009 4:03:43 PM

my veterinary tells me they are and I believe in my veterinary

6/4/2009 3:56:08 PM


6/4/2009 3:49:11 PM

life and death issues

6/4/2009 3:43:54 PM

illness that can spread and kill quickly

6/4/2009 3:42:33 PM

They protet against the most serious diseases that are prevalent in my area

6/4/2009 3:39:47 PM

You forgot tetnus and botulism!

6/4/2009 3:35:31 PM

most common in our area

6/4/2009 3:20:56 PM

it kills

6/4/2009 3:04:35 PM

Alot of "critters" live in the woods where we live!

6/4/2009 2:43:13 PM

Most likeley in my area

6/4/2009 1:48:15 PM

can't prevent mosquitos or wildlife contact

6/4/2009 1:30:35 PM

My horse is boarded

6/4/2009 11:53:44 AM

You can't cure either.

6/4/2009 11:48:26 AM

Deadly diseases transmissible to humans!

6/4/2009 11:30:54 AM

So hard to pick only 2! I'm forced to get rabies but it's not at the top of my list.

6/4/2009 11:08:19 AM

rabies is 100% fatal and is endemic in wildlife. EEE/WEE, etc occur in the region and are high risk

6/4/2009 10:10:32 AM

they are the most likely disease your horse can get.

6/4/2009 8:41:36 AM

What, tetanus is not a choice? My 2 are tet and rabies.

6/4/2009 8:27:00 AM

WN still has active cases occuring

6/4/2009 5:39:23 AM

they present more of a threat to the horses life

6/4/2009 12:42:55 AM

I think THREE are important, WNV, rabies and encephalitis

6/3/2009 11:42:26 PM

Lost a brave strong horse to Rabies, vax annually now

6/3/2009 11:08:37 PM

WNV-EEE/WEE/VEE-Rabies are the most important!

6/3/2009 10:52:56 PM

most deadlyand most zoonotic

6/3/2009 10:37:13 PM

Safety to both poeple and other horses. Also do tetanus since wounds of all types allow bacteria in.

6/3/2009 10:16:30 PM

Where is tetanus?

6/3/2009 9:17:56 PM

in my area, these diseases pose the greatest risk, with rabies and PHF following the mosquitoe born

6/3/2009 9:13:03 PM

The rest is regional.

6/3/2009 8:50:38 PM

Both are quite deadly and both are prevelant where I live.

6/3/2009 8:42:46 PM

Rabies and WNV have serious side effects or high fatality rates and all horses could be infected

6/3/2009 8:40:17 PM


6/3/2009 7:42:13 PM

VERY easy to get, VERY hard to treat!

6/3/2009 7:41:42 PM

what about tetnus?

6/3/2009 7:28:26 PM

West Nile virus is really scary. Necropsies showed brain lesions in birds after "cured" (ChicagoZoo)

6/3/2009 6:11:39 PM

The only one prevalent in my area

6/3/2009 6:08:53 PM

Rabies is very important also but you allowed only two selections

6/3/2009 5:57:14 PM

Depends where you are or traveling. Normal is Tetnus E/W, Influenza, WNV+area; Rabies/PHF rare here.

6/3/2009 5:47:38 PM

Vaccinosis is very real!! Educate yourself and trust that a strong immune sys. is the answer!

6/3/2009 5:42:04 PM

more prevalent

6/3/2009 5:25:59 PM

Rabies &EWT

6/3/2009 4:48:30 PM

Also Rabis is very inportant as we live by a river and woods

6/3/2009 4:12:46 PM

prevelance of occurrence

6/3/2009 4:10:34 PM

west nile is becoming bad, and the other that is not even an option is tetanus

6/3/2009 3:56:38 PM

In So. Cal these two are a must for health animal

6/3/2009 3:55:11 PM

I live in Mosquito land

6/3/2009 3:37:05 PM

100% effective against diseases with 100% mortality

6/3/2009 3:27:23 PM

Just feel they are the most common.

6/3/2009 3:16:00 PM

I have seen more reports of rabies.

6/3/2009 2:52:35 PM

Tetanus is not on the list but is my second choice

6/3/2009 2:45:05 PM

most common and most deadly

6/3/2009 2:41:12 PM

these are the biggest risk in the area I live, especially rabies!

6/3/2009 2:29:27 PM

only because you left out tetanus

6/3/2009 2:23:10 PM

Its in the area

6/3/2009 2:02:27 PM

I would have also chosen rabies, but since only allowed 2 it was EEE and W Nile

6/3/2009 1:41:56 PM

most dangerous

6/3/2009 1:25:31 PM

If I could pick 3 or 4 -- I always include influenza & strangles vaccines & this year--rabies.

6/3/2009 1:23:17 PM

mosquitos are everywhere and Rhino is easily contracted from surfaces

6/3/2009 1:19:47 PM

Horses are exposed to the threat of contracting these the most often

6/3/2009 1:08:06 PM

In my area, WNV is a danger, and sleeping sickness too. Well, rabies.

6/3/2009 12:34:23 PM

EEE & rabies are the most deadly; rabies can be easily spread to humans & other pets

6/3/2009 12:23:39 PM

Well actually there are three but I can only chose two. WNV is the main killer around here.

6/3/2009 12:07:46 PM

transmitted to people

6/3/2009 12:07:38 PM

Rabies important, too, but likelihood of horses getting bitten by mosquitos probably far greater.

6/3/2009 11:32:44 AM

Flu and Tetanus, though you didn't include tet in your list.

6/3/2009 11:03:20 AM

Some of the others aren't around in this area/don't bring horses anywhere

6/3/2009 10:59:18 AM

aid in prevention of abortion of healthy mares and the health of our racing stock

6/3/2009 10:58:17 AM

Rabies and encephalitis can kill. The others, in healthy individuals, can survive with good nursing.

6/3/2009 10:53:40 AM

this is what is most common in our area

6/3/2009 10:39:20 AM

These two both cause neurological disorders.

6/3/2009 10:06:11 AM

most common in my area

6/3/2009 10:04:48 AM

In my area thses diseases are most likely to occur.

6/3/2009 9:53:47 AM

These are the most prevalent diseases in our area.

6/3/2009 9:53:38 AM

You did not include TETANUS, by far the most important!

6/3/2009 9:50:16 AM

They are the most common illnesses in my part of the counrty

6/3/2009 9:49:17 AM

most common in my area and hardest to treat

6/3/2009 9:39:22 AM

Life threatening

6/3/2009 9:38:28 AM

mosquito born infections are more prevalent than infections/bites from other animals

6/3/2009 9:33:50 AM

WNV is also critical for stay at home horses

6/3/2009 9:31:57 AM

Rabies & West Nile come from Animals/insects in which owners have little control.

6/3/2009 9:30:17 AM

Rabies will kill if the animal is exposed to it and PHF is rampant in the area where I live.

6/3/2009 9:23:55 AM

mortality rate for these two are the highest

6/3/2009 9:14:52 AM

They are the two sicknesses most prevelent

6/3/2009 9:09:44 AM

West Nile and Rabies most common in the area

6/3/2009 8:53:29 AM

Because they are fatal.

6/3/2009 8:40:46 AM

my 2 guys are out in a pasture most of the time and do not come into contact with other horse

6/3/2009 8:27:08 AM

More common

6/3/2009 8:25:29 AM

Most likely in our area, and fatal or cost prohibitive treatment

6/3/2009 8:00:19 AM

Rabies is fatal if not caught before symptoms develop. We travel w/ our horse.

6/3/2009 7:59:10 AM

For the area of where I live I feel these are most dangerous. Although I give my horse all the vacs

6/3/2009 7:55:31 AM

The way they are transmitted

6/3/2009 7:43:13 AM

my horses get all that are needed for my area- hard to choose only 2

6/3/2009 7:31:19 AM

Live in Florida - need to allow West Nile

6/3/2009 7:21:30 AM

strangles for me is even more inportent then Rabies

6/3/2009 7:12:10 AM

Most all are important...hard to pick just two.

6/3/2009 7:10:37 AM

These two have been in the area

6/3/2009 6:52:15 AM

Likely causes of great economic loss in commercial horse enterprises

6/3/2009 2:30:02 AM

I live in the Gulf Coast where mosquito-born disease is a problem

6/3/2009 2:15:35 AM

Difficult to pick two - all are very important. Rabies especially.

6/3/2009 2:11:07 AM

regional exposure risks

6/3/2009 1:51:19 AM

No problem here within N.W. WA.,with WNV, EHV, Rabies, and PHF. But, I do plan to Vac.the WNV & Rab

6/3/2009 1:25:08 AM

I think tetnus would be the most important

6/3/2009 1:04:11 AM

Rabies because it’s so common and deadly, then EE strains or WN, depending on local prevalence

6/3/2009 1:03:26 AM

I believe Tetanus is one of the most important. Rabies and Enceph is easier to prevent than to cure.

6/3/2009 1:00:21 AM

I would have voted tetanus as one, but it wasn't a choice

6/3/2009 12:57:01 AM


6/3/2009 12:23:28 AM

most prevalent threat in Alabama

6/3/2009 12:07:30 AM

Rabies infection is lethal and serious concerns for human transmission exist.PHF vaccine has questio

6/2/2009 11:31:23 PM

You left out tetanus! Then the sleeping sicknesses & west nile, just cause of location in So Cal!

6/2/2009 11:29:40 PM

For human safety.

6/2/2009 11:25:48 PM

why don't you have tentanus? I feel this is perhaps the most important, then WNV, for non-traveller

6/2/2009 11:06:58 PM

Because of the complications and side effects. I used to worry about PHF when I lived in MI

6/2/2009 11:06:14 PM

Most deadly - tetanus should be included.

6/2/2009 11:05:06 PM

Regional risk factors. Why isn't tetanus on the list???

6/2/2009 10:42:27 PM

The amount of mosquitos!

6/2/2009 10:40:11 PM

no cure for the illness

6/2/2009 10:33:31 PM

In my area (south west coast, Canada) this is what my vet recommends. Tetanus is THE Most important

6/2/2009 10:27:56 PM

very contagious and makes the horse very sick or kills them

6/2/2009 10:23:29 PM

i want to pick sleeping sickness also

6/2/2009 10:18:21 PM

In Coastal Texas mosquitos are terrible. We do all of those shots listed yearly.

6/2/2009 10:12:24 PM

we have major mosquitos here

6/2/2009 10:11:09 PM

Hard to pick only 2 - we give vewt, wnv and rabies. all prevalent here in Texas

6/2/2009 10:10:12 PM

Most likely to die if infected

6/2/2009 10:09:06 PM

most common illness and most treatable with vaccine

6/2/2009 10:05:27 PM

tetanus and rabies

6/2/2009 10:02:18 PM

My horses are outside 24-7 in the summer. Therefore, could be infected.

6/2/2009 9:56:45 PM

We live around a lot of water and wildlife

6/2/2009 9:31:15 PM

other illnesses are not common to our area

6/2/2009 9:29:10 PM

Area I live in, tetanus not list, would supplant EEE, etc.

6/2/2009 9:22:47 PM

Both in my area. Both fatal.

6/2/2009 9:20:44 PM

because the mortality rate is so high

6/2/2009 9:07:57 PM

can't fix rabies: encephalits so debilitating, what about TETANUS!

6/2/2009 9:01:37 PM

Tetenus should be in the top two.

6/2/2009 8:58:04 PM

they are contagious

6/2/2009 8:52:56 PM

top on my list

6/2/2009 8:48:31 PM

Influenza most common, pasture or barn kept can be exposed to sick critters.

6/2/2009 8:38:19 PM

They are both mosquito born and and wide spread.

6/2/2009 8:29:55 PM

I also think Strangles as these are what we might see here in SC.

6/2/2009 8:13:38 PM

most fatal

6/2/2009 8:11:59 PM

Because humans can contract these two viruses as well

6/2/2009 8:09:10 PM

Rabies is deadly to hores & human and often overlooked

6/2/2009 8:05:11 PM

5-way & Rabies

6/2/2009 7:45:47 PM


6/2/2009 7:44:29 PM

these are the commom found diseases in this area

6/2/2009 7:42:06 PM

I like to give the 4way vaccine

6/2/2009 7:38:07 PM

Rabies because my horses are out 24/7 and there's lots of wildlife. I would alsohave picked tetanus

6/2/2009 7:37:54 PM

besides rabies, WNV, I would also include EEE & influenza

6/2/2009 7:31:41 PM

I do a 6 in one, plus rabies, this was a hard choice

6/2/2009 7:28:27 PM

We give tetanus as part of the EEE/WEE/VEE. Tetanus and Rabies can easily kill even a backyard hors

6/2/2009 7:19:32 PM

Rabies is lethal and preventable. EHV is very contagious, so vaccinating is important.

6/2/2009 7:10:34 PM

Wow, MOST are important!

6/2/2009 7:00:02 PM

We haven't had any incidences of EHV,PHF or rabies where I live

6/2/2009 6:55:49 PM

You did not offer my #1 choice-Tetnus.

6/2/2009 6:50:38 PM

And tetanus. PHF vaccine is worthless!

6/2/2009 6:49:39 PM

Rabies is active in this area.

6/2/2009 6:32:13 PM

I believe that tetanus is more important than either one of these.

6/2/2009 6:29:55 PM

no cure for wither one

6/2/2009 6:19:53 PM

there is no cure for rabies, and sleeping sickness is very hard to cure.

6/2/2009 6:19:36 PM

Why don't you list Tetanus? That should be there.

6/2/2009 6:18:56 PM

these are the two most serious infections...I have critters near me, no rabies, or wee/eee/vee

6/2/2009 6:03:12 PM

That is the most common diseases horses get here in florida

I only checked one because tetanus isn't on the list an I can't buy Rabies shots d

6/2/2009 5:40:54 PM

there have been known outbreaks in my area

6/2/2009 5:40:29 PM

if there's no cure then forget "ounce of prevention is worth pound of cure"

6/2/2009 5:37:17 PM

I would like to add tetnus to your list. Horses are always rubbing on gates. west nile is common

6/2/2009 5:32:44 PM

Rabies is a death sentence

6/2/2009 5:32:13 PM

These diseases are passable to humans

6/2/2009 5:30:52 PM

these are the worst and most common

6/2/2009 5:30:36 PM

Tetanus is also very important

6/2/2009 5:29:16 PM

easily spreadable and very min. basic vacinations

6/2/2009 5:26:23 PM

Depending on your area, WNV/Tetanus are critical

6/2/2009 5:25:35 PM

These are most prevalent here - my horse is not in a herd.

6/2/2009 5:25:22 PM

and tetanus!

6/2/2009 5:14:28 PM

both are deadly

6/2/2009 5:14:24 PM

I think WNV just as important but it's hard to pick only two when they are ALL VERY important!

6/2/2009 5:11:32 PM

most prevalent in my area

6/2/2009 5:08:49 PM

EEE etc., & rabies because these are the most likely ailments to afflict the horse

6/2/2009 5:00:44 PM

highest risk locally

6/2/2009 4:55:58 PM

They are the big ones in this area

6/2/2009 4:55:14 PM

followed by Sleeping Sickness, Flu & EHV no PHF in my area

6/2/2009 4:55:02 PM

Sleeping sickness and influenza are standard vacs but West Nile has become a must now!

6/2/2009 4:49:21 PM

Deadly and can be prevented.

6/2/2009 4:47:29 PM

most deadly and common

6/2/2009 4:46:43 PM


6/2/2009 4:46:31 PM

why isn't tentis on the list?

6/2/2009 4:45:46 PM

The other vaccine which I consider essentual is tetanus which I didn't see on your list.

6/2/2009 4:45:22 PM

Tetanus, Tetanus, TETANUS!!!

6/2/2009 4:37:55 PM

it really depends on where you are and whats in your area.

6/2/2009 4:33:40 PM

Tetnus and West Nile

6/2/2009 4:33:20 PM

and Tetnus.

6/2/2009 4:29:35 PM

Rabies has zoonotic importance and is a fatal disease with no known treatment other than vaccination

6/2/2009 4:27:36 PM

Hey...where's tetnaus?? It's second to rabies.

6/2/2009 4:26:53 PM

both are located in my area

6/2/2009 4:25:54 PM

we live in mosquito infested south jersey

6/2/2009 4:25:17 PM


6/2/2009 4:21:37 PM

You left out tetnus!

6/2/2009 4:21:12 PM

Where is tetnus? That absolutely needs to be #1.

6/2/2009 4:20:56 PM

rabies is clearly lethal, and transmittable to humans; flu is generally not lethal,

6/2/2009 4:17:33 PM

Rabies, for raccoons. We rarely ride around other horses, and I know no one in SW MO who has had WNV

6/2/2009 4:16:16 PM

Those are the basics..along with Tetanus I believe.

6/2/2009 4:15:27 PM

I would imagine that it depends on your area. In the dry SW rabies and WNV are what I fear most.

6/2/2009 4:14:32 PM

rabies is fatal and flu is everywhere

6/2/2009 4:02:33 PM

What about tetnus?????

6/2/2009 4:01:18 PM


6/2/2009 3:59:57 PM

You forgot Tetanus!

6/2/2009 3:56:44 PM

area specific

6/2/2009 3:56:04 PM

Lots of skeeters where I live.

6/2/2009 3:54:06 PM

EEE could be stopped if all horses were vacinated. Rabies kills.

6/2/2009 3:50:27 PM

because I am surrounded by swamps with birds and mosquitoes and my horses stay at home.

6/2/2009 3:44:03 PM

It depends on your Geographical location, Mine is Brome Qc. Canada. I chose rabies, and West Nile.

6/2/2009 3:42:04 PM


6/2/2009 3:41:48 PM

rabies because it is passed from wildlife, which a horse has ample contact with

6/2/2009 3:41:13 PM

Poor prognosis

6/2/2009 3:39:54 PM

These two can be killers

6/2/2009 3:39:41 PM

Tetnus & Botulism

6/2/2009 3:39:40 PM

You forgot tetanus

6/2/2009 3:37:19 PM

The most serious to horses

6/2/2009 3:37:17 PM

The worrisome diseases in my area.

6/2/2009 3:33:33 PM

tetanus and rabies mostly, eee/wee/vee is 3rd.

6/2/2009 3:33:30 PM

I believe these two are the most prevalent in my area.

6/2/2009 3:31:10 PM

they can be the dealiest!

6/2/2009 3:31:09 PM

ALL sleeping sickness,tetanus,WNV,EVH, flu important. Survey limited,so picked 2 common locally

6/2/2009 3:28:23 PM

Most prevalent

6/2/2009 3:28:07 PM

That would be what is most prevalent in my area, but hard to pick just 2.

6/2/2009 3:27:04 PM

rabies is fatal - EEE/WEE/VEE most common in our area. Tetanus would have been my 1st choice.

6/2/2009 3:25:28 PM

they can die from it! (and so could you - rabies)

6/2/2009 3:20:20 PM

These diseases have high mortality rates.

6/2/2009 3:19:26 PM

My area doesn't have a high incendence of Rabies or PHF

6/2/2009 3:16:33 PM

I Feel that all of the above listed vaccinations are important

6/2/2009 3:13:50 PM

EEE/WEE/VEE & EHV - I'd add Flu to pick a third one. WNV and PHF are not prevalent in Oregon

6/2/2009 3:11:41 PM

Tetanus should be on this list, it is probably the most important of all!

6/2/2009 3:05:43 PM


6/2/2009 3:02:54 PM

one is very contagious and the other is unrecoverable from

6/2/2009 3:01:10 PM

More danger of exposure/no cure for rabies.

6/2/2009 2:57:12 PM

I believe that rabies is the most important because without it, rabies is catastrophic.

6/2/2009 2:55:26 PM

rabies is prevalent in wild animals where I live and west nile is a farirly new disease

6/2/2009 2:53:47 PM

Most debilitating, vector more common

6/2/2009 2:53:39 PM

Have lots of wildlife in our area that carry rabies.

6/2/2009 2:52:23 PM

For one horse, that is all I can do now since she becomes dangerously ill after Spring shots

6/2/2009 2:44:47 PM

I need more votes! but these are active in our area

6/2/2009 2:23:19 PM

most likely where I live

6/2/2009 12:11:02 PM

You need to add Tetanus to the list.

6/2/2009 10:04:00 AM

Tetenus vaccine required
