Posted: Oct 7, 2013 | Author: Health4horses
You can vaccinate your horse against equine herpes virus with Duvaxyn® EHV-1,4, available from your vet.
Vaccination reduces the clinical signs of respiratory diseases caused by both strains of the virus, EHV-1 and EHV-4.
It also helps to control EHV-1 abortion when used in conjunction with appropriate management practices, as advised by your vet.
Your horse can get this vaccination from 5 months of age, or from 3 months if at high risk of infection. Your horse will need a second dose 4–6 weeks after the first dose, followed by a booster every 6 months.
Breeding mares should receive doses at 5, 7 and 9 months of pregnancy.
