Vaccination Advice

New Health Advice section covering Vaccinations in particular Equine Influenza vaccination.

HOPEFULLY you all have your horse’s vaccinated against Equine Influenza….but what does that mean?  what is in that vial of vaccine? and why have I chosen this vaccine to use?

Equine Influenza is a large, continually evolving virus family split into groups or lineage.

Since 2011 almost ALL the equine flu outbreaks in Europe belong to clade 2 of the Florida sublineage, while a few are from Clade 1.  Whereas in the USA and Latin America, mostly clade 1 virus are isolated.

The World Organisation for Animal Health (OIE) recommend that vaccines should contain both Clade 1 and Clade 2 strains of the Florida sublineage in order to ensure optimum protection.

My vaccine, PROTEQFLU, not only contains Clade 1 and Clade 2 strains of the Florida sublineage BUT it is the only such vaccine on the market to offer such protection.

As they say never accept compromise….
