Will I miniatures

See below , 2 way...
Rhino- Give the initial dose followed by a booster in approx. 4 weeks ( I don't give to
 my pregnant mares) and give annual booster

West Nile Virus (WNV)- Give first dose and follow by booster in approx. 4 weeks. Then, give
annual booster (biannual if mosquitoes present all year)


Flu (influenza) 6 months
Strepguard (=Strangles) for under 5 yrs and those who attend shows/clinics/driving events
Rhino (annual)


Foal Vaccinations..


 Flu (influenza)- Give the foal a vaccination at 6 months and follow this with
a booster in approximately 4 weeks

If mom has been boostered while pregnant:

5 months WNV  2-way Eastern and Western Encephalomyelitis and Tetanus... Strangles optional
6 months: (this is your booster since this is the first time for these vaccinations) 2- way:
(encephalomyelitis), Tetanus, Strangles optional, WNV booster if I did not give, I give aone.

11 months: influenza and rhino
12 months: influenza and rhino booster

I do not use, 4 or 5 ways on any of my miniature foals I use, Encevac 2 way, then follow up.
If mom has not been boostered, everything is the same except to move each set of shots up by one


Adult horses: Worm every 6-8 weeks and rotate yearly between the three types of wormers:
Worm bred mare within 12 hours after  foaling to help prevent scours in foal. To ensure I stick to routine, I worm everytime my farrier comes out which is 6 to 8 weeks.


 1. Ivermectrin or Zimectrin
2. Pyrantel (Rotectin, Strongid paste)
3. Benzimidazole (Panacur, Anthelcide EQ)
Worm every 4 weeks with Panacur



         Here is a better chart to go by but you should follow your own schedule that fit's your barn or area.
                                                                                       Also common equine diseases

Tetanus Often referred to as “lockjaw”, tetanus is caused by a toxin-producing bacterium that is often found in the soil. It can enter the skin through cuts, wounds or a newborn’s umbilicus. Symptoms include muscle stiffness and rigidity, flared nostrils, prolapsed third eyelid and legs stiffly held in a sawhorse stance. As the disease progresses, muscles in the jaw and face stiffen, preventing the animal from eating or drinking. More than 80% of affected horses die.
Encephalomyelitis More commonly known as “sleeping sickness”, this virus is transmitted to horses by mosquitoes that have acquired it from birds and rodents. Eastern (EEE) and Western (WEE) equine encephalomyelitis have been noted in the United States. Venezuelan (VEE) equine encephalomyelitis has not been seen in the U.S., however a recent outbreak occurred in Mexico. Symptoms vary, but all result from degeneration of the brain. Early signs include fever, depression and loss of appetite. As it progresses, staggering gait and paralysis may develop. Depending upon the strain, between 20 and 100% of infected horses die.
West Nile Virus A virus transmitted by mosquitoes that have acquired it from birds or other animals. West Nile Virus infects the central nervous system, and presents with symptoms similar to Encephalomyelitis. Although it has been responsible for equine deaths, most infected horses can achieve full or partial recovery with supportive therapy.
Rabies The rabies virus is most often transmitted through contact with the saliva of an infected animal. Rabies affects the central nervous system and leads to cerebral dysfunction, including excess salivation, abnormal behavior and aggression. Though horses are infected infrequently, it is always fatal. Rabies can be transmitted from horses to humans.
Equine Herpesvirus/Rhinopneumonitis (EHV) Two distinct viruses, equine herpesvirus type 1 (EHV-1) and equine herpesvirus type 4 (EHV-4) cause two different diseases, both of which are known as rhinopneumonitis. Both types cause respiratory problems that may include fever, lethargy, loss of appetite, nasal discharge and coughing. EHV-1 may also cause abortion, foal death, neurological signs and paralysis. Rhinopneumonitis is spread by aerosol or direct contact with secretions, instruments or drinking water. The virus may not present any symptoms in carrier animals. Immune protection for pregnant mares requires vaccination with EHV-1 vaccine specifically labeled for abortion protection.
Influenza One of the most common respiratory diseases in horses, influenza is highly contagious. The virus can be transmitted by aerosol transmission from horse to horse. Symptoms are similar to those in a human with a cold, including dry cough, nasal discharge, fever and loss of appetite. Horses that travel or are exposed to other horses are most at risk.
Potomac Horse Fever An acute enterocolitis caused by ingestion of bacterial spores that may be found in pastures bordering creeks and rivers. Symptoms can include mild colic, fever, diarrhea and abortion. PHF is a seasonal problem with geographic factors.
Strangles A highly contagious, yet rarely fatal, bacterial infection characterized by abscess of the lymphoid tissue of the upper respiratory tract. Strangles is transmitted through contact with infectious excretions and surfaces containing the resilient bacteria.
