The online database contains all vaccines given from the time the first vaccines are entered. For example if a horse is vaccinated in January and then needs another immunization later in the year the January vaccination will show up, along with the most recent vaccines/ tests. Horses are identified by photos, registration numbers (USEF, FEI, Passport etc), and unique marking description. Registration into the system only has to be done once.
The information entered on the certificate can be printed out and brought with the horse to the show, emailed to the show office in a PDF form, or can be accessed directly by the show office staff. Once your horse is registered any vaccine updates are easily entered. Our records are designed to meet the requirements of all shows. No need to fill out separate forms for each show.
Examples Of Infectious Diseases:
~ A highly contagious respiratory disease that causes fever, coughing and nasal discharge. Vaccinate high-risk horses semi-annually, and low risk horses annually.
Equine herpesvirus (EHV)
~ Also known as rhinopneumonitis, EHV type 1 and EHV type 4 can cause fever, lethargy, nasal discharge and cough.
EHV-1 also caused abortions in pregnant mares. Consider six-month revaccination for horses less than five years old, horses on breeding farms, or performance/show horses at high risk. Broodmares should be vaccinated at five, seven and nine months of gestation. Vaccinate all other horses annually.
Except where indicated, vaccines for broodmares should be administered at the same frequency as for other adult horses, four to six weeks pre-partum.
