Shoot ‘Em Up! Time for Spring Vaccines, presented by Wahl

Regular people say spring is time for spring cleaning. Horse people say that spring is a time for sheath cleaning…and a set of vaccinations for their horses, before the mosquitos are in full force and the travel/competition season begins.

If you’re not sure what vaccines your horse needs and when, the AAEP has a great page of resources all about vaccines. Click on this Adult Horse Vaccination Chart” to read about core vaccinations that all horses should get, and risk-based vaccinations that you and your veterinarian should determine together, depending on what your horse is exposed to. This is easy to print out and stick on your tack room wall.
