What To Expect When Your Horse Is Vaccinated

Tips for keeping your horse healthy following safe vaccine procedures



MADISON, N.J. — Oct.  3, 2012 — It’s important to help protect your horse from diseases, but with so many different vaccines available, sometimes making a selection may seem challenging. To help you make an informed decision and develop a safe, effective vaccine program for your horse, seek the guidance of your veterinarian.

Along with explaining vaccine types and schedules, your equine veterinarian, like the one featured in this video clip, can explain what to expect when your horse is vaccinated, including how vaccines are commonly packaged, administered and can offer protection. Also, they can provide tips on how you can help avoid post-vaccination reactions and help prevent muscle stiffness in horses.

Pfizer Animal Health offers an extensive line of equine vaccines, many included in Pfizer Animal Health’s Equine Immunization Support Guarantee, which provides up to $5,000 for reasonable diagnostic and treatment costs if a horse properly vaccinated by a veterinarian contracts the corresponding equine disease. Disease protection backed by the Equine Immunization Support Guarantee includes infection from West Nile virus, equine influenza virus, tetanus, Eastern equine encephalomyelitis virus, Western equine encephalomyelitis virus and Venezuelan equine encephalomyelitis virus. Vaccinations must be provided and administered by a veterinarian with an established client-patient relationship to be eligible.
