Milbourn Equine are pleased to be running another Back On Track campaign during Flu Awareness Month in April.
Why not restart now, taking advantage of this great offer combined with one of our £10 Zone Visits for even better value! Call your local branch now to arrange a visit.
Equine flu is not spread by direct contact alone. It can travel more than 2km in the air and be passed on via tack or equipment, quickly spreading from an individual to the whole yard and beyond. Clinical signs can be subtle, especially in horses with a history of vaccination. Horses presenting with as little as a low-grade cough and/or serous nasal discharge should arouse suspicion.
A horse with flu needs complete rest and isolation, often putting them out of action for weeks. In addition to this, outbreaks can affect competitions at all levels, potentially resulting in the cancellation of events in order to control the spread of disease. The equine flu virus evolves and changes constantly and it is important that its development is monitored in order to ensure vaccines protect against the circulating strains.
VERY IMPORTANT SMALL PRINT - This offer is open to all equines over 12 months of age that have not yet been vaccinated against equine influenza or are overdue a booster. Any visit fee must be borne by the horse owner.
