Horses EEE

Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) is a viral disease that

causes neurological symptoms, 70% -90% of the time it

is fatal to horses.  Carried by mosquitoes this disease has

an incubation period of 5-14 days from the time of an

infectious mosquito bite.  

Mosquitoes are most likely to be carrying higher levels of the EEE virus and the West Nile Virus (WNV) in the late summer and early fall.  You can protect your horses with a repellent containing DEET.  Removing sources of standing water will help reduce the number of mosquitoes in your area. There are several vaccines that protect horses from EEE.  Two doses of an EEE vaccine given 3-4 weeks apart are necessary for solid immunity. Most vaccines containing the EEE antigen have other antigens in them as well. o Fluvac Innovator 5 - contains Influenza, EHV (Rhino), Tetanus toxoid as well as EEE and WEE. o Vetera EWT + EIV/EHV - contains similar antigens as the Fluvac Innovator 5. o Vetera EWT + WNV - contains EEE, WEE, Tetanus toxoid and the West Nile Virus antigens. Depending on the horse's personal vaccination history, your horse may need an annual booster or it may need a series of vaccines (2 given 3-6 weeks apart) to give full protection. Our receptionist will be able to tell you your horse's vaccination history if vaccinated with this practice. If you have not kept vaccinations current, we can recommend a program for you.
ALERT  Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE) has been confirmed in Lunenburg and Annapolis Counties. All equine owners are advised to assure their horses are current with the EEE vaccine.
