Tetanus: up to 80% of horses that get tetanus will die1 - sadly, owners of affected animals often have to euthanase their horse to end the misery
Strangles: highly debilitating, potentially fatal and extremely contagious respiratory disease that will keep your horse out of action - and still contagious - for weeks, or even months2,3
