Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Some of our horses which have been given their AHS vaccines appear to have slightly swollen eyes but their temperatures (taken twice a day) are completely normal. Should we consider this to be a vaccine reaction? They are showing no discomfort or other symptoms?

If vaccinated within the lasttwo weeks it could be a vaccine reaction. Regardless, I would reduce all forms of stressbut not treat unless the temperatures rise above 39.I suggest notriding until the eyes are completely normal as this may be due to another virus.
