Equine infectious disease can severely affect a horse’s health and performance and in some cases prove fatal.

As in humans, prevention is better than cure and vaccination is a key element in the fight against infectious disease. Vaccination helps horses fight infection and if a horse does develop disease, it will decrease the severity of signs. Vaccination is most effective when a high percentage of the population is vaccinated (known as herd immunity).
