Everyone want to share what vaccines they give and why? I would really appreciate any real life experience and any legit information on the web about vaccines, reactions/triggers/laminitis, titers, etc. So far the only thing I've given Chrome is Influenza, Eastern/Western and Tetanus. There have been quite a few cases of rabies in skunks in the area, so any info on that would be greatly appreciated. Is the rabies vaccine safe? Are they really needed? How likely is it that a horse will be bit by a skunk? I'm asking these questions honestly, because I don't know. I'm not being sarcastic or rhetorical.
Also do horses really need annual boosters? I don't give my dogs annual boosters because I've done the research and they don't need them any more than we need annual boosters (obviously some vaccines need boosters like for kennel cough, but I don't board so I don't get them). After I complete the puppy series of vaccines the only thing I give is rabies and that's only because it's required by law... I don't even give Storm a rabies because she is getting older (almost twelve) and I don't want to risk a reaction. She's never outdoors without my supervision so she's low risk for getting rabies.
So as you can see I've done all the research on dog vaccines, but for some reason I know very little about horse vaccines. I want to change that, but I don't even know where to begin researching lol. Thanks guys!
