UDAF Urges Horse Owners to Have their Animals Fully Vaccinated

A recent case of rabies found in a horse in Arizona is a good reminder to all horse owners in Utah to make sure all your equine vaccinations are current​, to include rabies vaccination​.

​A good core vaccination program should be tailored for your horses based on use and risk of exposure.  Your veterinarian will be able to assist in developing a basic vaccination schedule.​

Vaccinations are a relatively safe and​ inexpensive way to ​assist in keeping​ your horses healthy, give your horses immunity to many preventable equine diseases if you compete, associate with other horses, or travel with your horse,​ ​thus ​preventing​ the ​potential spread of equine diseases.
