Some vaccines seem to eliminate natural immunities

Our 3 horses don't leave our 72 acre private facility. If they did, we'd vaccinate.

I don't do strangles as mine are not exposed to it very much

Every spring for the 'herd' and if they are shown they also get a booster before the fall show.

I do not vaccinate for Strangles - Most vaccines can be worse then the disease.

8/9/2011 6:12:59 PM

We ALWAYS vaccinate. Having seen full-blown strangles, I don't want to see it again.

Vaccinations are cheap, compared with the cost of the cure -- if a cure is even possible.
