Please check your horse’s vaccination status and ensure that they are up to date with their vaccinations. Whilst annual vaccination should protect the majority of horses, certain individuals at higher risk may benefit from additional boosters.
Please feel free to ring and discuss your horse’s risk with one of our vets. If you are concerned, or notice your horse has a cough, elevated temperature or nasal discharge, please ring and speak to one of our vets immediately.
