Vaccinating my horse that is older 2 years ago with F.D almost killed my horse ,

I do not want the 'cure' to be worse than the disease--I hate reactions!

I go with the Vet's choice!! :-)

i think live attenuated vaccines will be more effective than killed...

I prefer good quality killed vaccines

safety and efficacy

I take titres and only vaccinate when essential.

While I do read up on these issues, I trust my vet's decision and have never had a problem

i always split mine up: rhino/flu in 1 shot, tet/enchephalo in another to reduce risk of abscess

Have a reactive mare so first consideration is whether she will have a reaction

12/7/2011 12:11:12 AM

I nly use single antigen vaccines, and spread them out over a couple of weeks. Fewer reactions.

I trust my vet to decide on what's safe for my horses

12/6/2011 6:55:54 PM

just want the right combination of antigens

12/6/2011 6:50:48 PM

I stop vaccinating when they reach 7 years of age

12/6/2011 6:42:35 PM

I trust the person who went to eight years of school, aka, my vet, to know best

12/6/2011 6:41:59 PM

Safety and efficacy are most important to me

12/6/2011 5:12:44 PM

Definitely virus type-I'll only let killed virus be used after big problems with live vaccine.
