Its that time of year: Spring vaccinations!
Due to the mild winter, we have begun administering spring vaccinations early. B.W. Furlong and Associates recommended schedule provides spring vaccinations in two visits. On the first visit, Flu/Rhino (Influenza/Rhinopneumonitis) is provided in one vaccine and EWT-WNV (Eastern Equine Encephalomyelitis, Western Equine Encephalomyelitis, Tetanus, and West Nile Virus) is provided in the second vaccine. Two weeks later, a Potomac Horse Fever/Rabies combination and Botulism vaccines are administered in two injections.

Don’t forget to check the expiration on your horse’s Coggins, as the spring vaccination visit is the perfect time to update! Call the office to schedule your vaccination visits today!
