In our ongoing efforts to simplify your busy life, the editors of Practical Horseman magazine have this handy equine vaccination guide for your downloading pleasure.
The American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP) has four “core” equine vaccination recommendations that EVERY horse should receive—tetanus, Eastern/Western equine encephalomyelitis, West Nile virus and rabies. Other vaccination decisions are based on risk factors.
You can find out which equine vaccinations are right for your horses at different ages and stages. Download this PDF chart with equine vaccination recommendations and our handy annual health chart, which allows you to record your horse’s vaccinations, deworming program, farrier visits, dentist visits and more.
To learn how to give IM injections, see “Administering Injections: Should or Shouldn’t You?” in the June 2011 issue of Practical Horseman magazine.
