In view of the constantly evolving situation surrounding the outbreak of Equine Influenza within the UK, we would like to offer our clients the following advice at this stage:

In line with current BHA, BEF, British Eventing and British Showjumping authorities, we recommend owners consider vaccinating a horse which has not received a booster within the last six months. This is especially relevant to those competing under any of the above governing bodies or those on busy competition yards.

More information and advice can be found directly from the BEF’s website : https://www.bef.co.uk/News-Detail.aspx…

We use the vaccine brand Equilis® Prequenza which is one of the two recommended brands to use in this current outbreak.

In previous Influenza outbreaks it has been noted that vaccinated horses show a reduced shedding of virus and display less clinical symptoms.

Please do not hesitate to call us on 01271 879516 if you have any concerns.

Kind regards from the Torch Equine Vet team.
