Equine Vaccines

For peace of mind. Vaccination is important to maintaining your horse's health. Horse vaccines can help protect your horses from a range of common equine viruses, and provide active immunity against a range of equine diseases.

Horse Vaccinations

The threat of deadly equine diseases like West Nile and EEE is closer than you think. Horses are continually exposed to wildlife and mosquitoes that transmit core equine diseases. Don’t leave your horse exposed. Help protect him or her with annual vaccinations against the core equine diseases:

  • Eastern and Western Equine Encephalomyelitis - Eastern equine encephalomyelitis (EEE) and western equine encephalomyelitis (WEE) are viral diseases that attack the nervous system. The risk of exposure to the virus varies from year to year with changes in the distribution of mosquitoes as well as birds and rodents that serve as virus reservoirs, but all horses are potentially at risk.
  • Tetanus - All horses are at risk for developing tetanus, a potentially fatal bacterial disease caused by Clostridium tetani. Present in the intestinal tract and feces of horses, other animals, and humans, the bacteria can be abundant in the soil. Bacterial spores can survive in the environment for years, creating a constant risk for horses and people.
  • West Nile - The West Nile virus causes inflammation of the central nervous system. Transmitted by mosquitoes, horses are at the highest risk for contracting West Nile virus during peak mosquito season, which occurs July through October in the United States. This virus has been identified in the entire continental United States, as well as Mexico and Canada, so all horses are considered at risk.
