Its time to pre-order sweet itch vaccines for your afflicted ponies & horses as we have to import them from abroad for you.
So it’s important for us to know who needs them well in advance.
If you have an affected horse or pony, you know that the signs usually develop when the culicoides midge become active with the warmer weather, ie March onwards.
The vaccine is not 100% effective with 1/3 of animals not responding, another 1/3 are much improved and the final 1/3 are perfect. We can’t tell you which will be successful.
For sweet itch we do two injections two weeks apart, ether at the practice or we can arrange a visit to you. The cost of the vaccine is £75 each injection (which includes the import cost and associated admin), plus the cost of the visit if needed.
