I urge anyone who has had a horse react from their vaccines to take the related survey at www.good-horsekeeping.com.
Once again, despite splitting up my horses’ vaccines and having half done in one visit and the rest in a second visit two weeks later, my horses had reactions. Two of the horses had snotty noses and stopped eating. The third, stocked up on her hind legs for 3-4 days.
Again, I have looked over recent information put out by various equine health organizations and veterinarians regarding the side-affects of vaccines. Most claim reactions are rare, however, I suspect otherwise. Either the combination of multiple serums into one shot is the reason for the number of times I have had horses react, or it’s the carrier in the vaccine.
Last year I heard of many other horse owners having horses react, yet it appears that the drug companies have not done anything to change their vaccines.
