Spring Shot Time Again

Spring is quickly on the approach which means it is also “spring shots” time for horse owners. Recommended for our region here in Western Massachusetts are rabies, Eastern and Western encephalomyelitis, tetanus and West Nile inocculations for every horse. Influenza and rhinopneumoitis (EHV1-4), Potomac horse fever and strangles are recommended based on individual horse’s risk. Who here, among horse owners and stable managers buys their vaccines and administers them themselves, or who skips certain vaccines, or all vaccinations all together?
