Our comprehensive equine vaccination services are tailored to each horse’s specific needs, taking into account factors such as their environment, travel history, and activities.

Customized Vaccination Schedules

Because horses have diverse vaccination needs, we recommend discussing your horse’s vaccination schedule with our team of experienced veterinarians. Together, we can develop a customized vaccination plan that aligns with your horse’s lifestyle and helps ensure their continued health and vitality.

Starting Vaccinations for Young Horses

Typically, horses do not receive vaccinations until they are several months old, depending on their individual requirements. Some vaccinations may be initiated at four months old, with booster shots administered three to four weeks later. Other vaccinations may not be administered until a horse reaches five to six months old, with similar booster requirements.

Benefits of Equine Vaccinations

Disease Prevention

Vaccinations help protect horses from a range of contagious and potentially life-threatening diseases, including influenza, tetanus, and equine herpesvirus.

Herd Immunity

By vaccinating your horses, you contribute to the overall health and well-being of the equine community, helping to prevent disease outbreaks and promote herd immunity.

Peace of Mind

Knowing that your horses are up-to-date on their vaccinations gives you peace of mind, knowing that you’ve taken proactive steps to safeguard their health.

Enhanced Performance

Vaccinated horses are less likely to suffer from preventable illnesses, ensuring they can perform at their best during competitions, races, or other activities.

Reduced Veterinary Costs

By investing in equine vaccinations, horse owners can potentially avoid costly veterinary treatments for diseases that could have been prevented.

Protects the Community

Equine vaccinations safeguard individual horses and contribute to the equine community’s overall health, reducing the risk of disease transmission and promoting a healthier environment for all horses.
