Every horse should be vaccinated against tetanus as the bacteria which causes this devastating disease is widespread, in the soil and horses' guts naturally.
Even the smallest wound or cut can allow entry of the bacteria and they proliferate in damaged tissues.

If your horse acquires a wound and has an unknown tetanus vaccination history, the tetanus antitoxin should be administered. The tetanus toxoid vaccine can also be started at the same time.

It is highly recommended that horses are vaccinated against equine influenza, particularly if they travel frequently and come into contact with other horses. An outbreak of influenza is difficult to treat and control.

Please keep up to date with your horse's vaccinations.
