I have set up a breeding for my mare next spring. Yes she is reg. no she hasn't done anything but the stallion owner has looked at her and her pedigree and agreed to the breeding. He said she had good conformation and good pedigree.

Anyway I've only had one other mare had bred and that was a long time ago.
I was wondering about vaccinations. She will be due for them in the fall but Should she get them again in spring before she is bred or wait till after?

How about the West Nile, I heard a few years ago that it was causing mares to abort. Is this still the case?

Thank you for any input

Call and discuss this with your vet and the pros and cons of what is needed for your area and a bred mare. But yes, I would stick to the normal vaccination schedule in addition to the vaccines that bred mares receive.

Thank you, I did some research on the internet and when the time comes closer I'll talk to my vet. I'm ocd and probably will read everything I can. I had a mare that was in foal when I got her but she was a month away from foaling and everything had been taken care of.

I would consult with your vet and see what they say.
My mares get their regular shots and the boosters at regualr intervals.
I bought two mares last year that were thought to be due within the month.
The vet gave them their regular shots West Nile included.
If you start worrying now i hate to see you when she is nearly due. LOL Shalom

The reports and rumors about the West Nile Virus vaccs causing abortions and birth defects that were circling around a few years ago were false. There is, of course, always a small risk with any vaccs, but the advantages far outweigh the risks. Actually, a WNV vacc is recommended a month or two before foaling...
