Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

I have a 4 month old foal, who is hand raised (mother died at 2 months). We are now entering AHS season, is it best to vacinate now or wait till later? He is kept with his adopted mother (no drinking from her) in the evening in a stable (going in at 16:00 going out at 8 am?

We do not advise vaccinating during an outbreat situation and suggest that you increase all protection measurers like shade cloth stable, repellents and even a fan in the stable to disburse the oudour and CO2 emmissions which attract the midges.
