These vaccination guidelines, are established from my research and observations, for horses that are resident of South-Central Alaska. Please consult your veterinarian for your region or travel outside of Alaska.
The American Association of Equine Practitioners best describes my vaccination advice in the following statement from their Principles of Vaccination web page:
A “standard” vaccination program for all horses does not exist. Each individual situation requires evaluation based on the following criteria:
Of these four vaccines, Tetanus is the essential vaccine for our region.
The AAEP - Risk-Based Vaccination Guidelines identifies 8 different vaccines that are based on potential disease exposure and potential risk.
At this point a complete medical history of the horse, stall or boarding facilities, exposure to transient horses, and owners concerns must be established to determine the vaccines used. In short a risk based analysis should be established prior to vaccine administration.
