Types of Vaccinations For Horses

The following are the two different categories of equine vaccinations we provide.

  • Core Equine Vaccinations

    The five core diseases that all have significant fatality rates in horses are:

    • Rabies
    • West Nile virus
    • Eastern and Western equine encephalomyelitis
    • Tetanus

    According to the American Association of Equine Practitioners, all horses are susceptible to these potentially fatal diseases and should be vaccinated annually.

  • Risk-Based Equine Vaccinations

    The following vaccinations are given if your horse's lifestyle may put them at risk:

    • Equine influenza virus
    • Herpesvirus 
    • Strangles
    • Potomac horse fever
    • Botulism

The Importance of Routine Exams

Vet checkups for horses are critical to helping your horse maintain good long-term physical health. 

Combined with regular vaccinations, parasite prevention, and proper nutrition, these routine examinations, including regular physical checkups, can help identify minor problems early in the course of a disease.
