Caring for a horse requires making sure it receives regular vaccinations healthcare. Failure to provide vaccinations on the recommended schedule can result in serious illness or even death for your horse. Some of the vaccinations that are recommended for horses include:

  • Tetanus
  • Eastern and Western Equine Encephalomyelitis
  • Equine Influenza
  • Rhinopneumonitis (i.e. Equine Herpes)
  • Rabies
  • West Nile Virus

To determine which vaccinations are best for your horse, you should talk to your veterinarian. Depending upon your unique situation, some of these vaccinations may not be necessary. On the other hand, protecting your horse with the help of vaccinations is a simple and effective method for ensuring your horse lives a long and healthy life. You can further ensure your horse remains healthy by having your veterinarian test and deworm your horse on a regular basis. You should also take steps to reduce your horse’s exposure to parasites. Simple ways to accomplish this task is to rotate pastures, remove feces on a regular basis and never put too many horses on too little land.

Of course, even when properly vaccinating your horse, there is the possibility that your horse will become ill or get in an accident. In either case, contacting a reputable and respectful large animal removal service is necessary in order to ensure your horse is properly handled
