If research showwed safer, less side effects, lasted longer, better immune response, etc

I don't like rhinoflu vaccine for my horse, I insist on intranasal, against vet recommendations

Been using them for the last 4-5 years!

Vac. for strangles

Have to trust hr vet. That's why I go to her/him.

if they didn't sneeze it back into my face, I'd be convinced, just another fancy $$ for drug co's

Studies found that the shot works better for Flu Rhino. I used to use the IN & my horse hated!

Prefer it to old method. My horses are good with it; have seen others refusing to cooperate.

8/24/2011 12:58:21 PM

That is an old isn't it? Prefer more current strains

Would like to see an independent study evaluating the effectiveness before making a decision.

8/24/2011 11:32:07 AM

Would need to see some cost/benefit analysis as part of the process

8/24/2011 8:50:20 AM

my horses always get this vaccine

8/24/2011 7:50:42 AM

My horse gets extremely sore from the flu vaccine that I would be willing to try it

8/23/2011 9:55:55 PM

i think many companies should focus on better safer vaccines rather than constantly trying to up one

8/23/2011 9:02:08 PM

My horse is extremely sensitive to nasal invasion - would be a big safety issue

8/23/2011 6:32:09 PM

only in cases needing immediate protection

8/23/2011 6:01:41 PM

My boys already had one!

8/23/2011 5:08:29 PM

Vet has used IN vaccine the past, now uses IM injection

8/23/2011 4:53:40 PM

It probably saved our horse's life, too.

8/23/2011 4:29:43 PM

I have a great vet, so if he recommended something I'd be willing to try it.

8/23/2011 4:17:49 PM

Yearly vaccines are killing our horses immune systems! Please do some homework!!

8/23/2011 4:05:42 PM

My mare has bad reactions to intramuscular vaccination so my vet suggested IN.

8/23/2011 4:01:14 PM

My last vet used those, my current does not.

8/23/2011 3:33:32 PM

No, and probably would not use.

8/23/2011 3:16:48 PM

Recommended, yes. Actually used, no.

8/23/2011 3:16:13 PM

Our strangles vaccine is IN.

8/23/2011 2:53:00 PM

I request IN for my horses; especially for the one who HATES needles =<

8/23/2011 1:21:45 PM

My vet is an equine only specialist and uses injectable
