2015 Strangles Client Talks

In 2015 we have had outbreaks of Strangles and Equine Influenza (Flu) in several locations within our practice area.

Strangles and Equine Influenza are the most common contagious diseases of horses and are widespread across the UK. These diseases can spread quickly between susceptible horses and uncontrolled outbreaks can effectively close a yard down for months. Thankfully several measures can be taken to try and prevent these diseases entering your yard and to limit their impact should they be diagnosed.

To help we invited our clients to evening meetings to discuss these diseases. The talks covered the clinical signs, diagnosis and treatment of the conditions and biosecurity measures to be taken to protect your yard.

Thank you everyone who attended.
