It is time for fall vaccinations! Please call the office to make an appointment or if you have any questions on your horses vaccination history.

While we consistently try to give our horses all they need to stay healthy, it is essential to make sure the products we are choosing are effective. This year, at our spring vaccination appointments, we are recommending checking your horses fecal for intestinal worms and signs of gastric or hindgut ulceration. Intestinal problems can be the source of many other behavior and performance issues. Signs such as poor coat, sensitivity, irritability, resistance and even lameness can be the result of an uncomfortable GI tract. It’s certainly wise to resolve or treat these problems before signs worsen. You will need to have the total amount of one fecal ball retrieved from a few different areas in one pile of your horses manure. Acceptable samples should be collected within 4 hours of your appointment and placed in a Ziploc bag with as much air removed as possible. We will gather the results within 2 days and make further recommendations of deworming or possible helpful products based on results.
Since pasture grass is limited in NJ, it is wise to make sure your horses are getting adequate amounts of Vitamin E from other feedstuffs. Animals with deficiencies can show weight loss and eventually muscle tremors. Vitamin E serves to maintain normal neuromuscular function and is a great addition when treating for EPM.
As ticks begin to emerge we remind you that there is no vaccine labelled to treat horses. Consider having a titer done to establish a baseline for your horse which is very helpful to differentiate if an infection occurs later in the future.
