Now is strangles an actual vaccine? I had my mini vaccinated for everything and one of them they syringed a liquid up his nose kinda like they do for dogs with kennel cough (I think it is)

It might be haha. I never have them all done. I usually only do the necissary ones but being he came from auction I felt it would be safe to do them all. Was just wondering what the liquid one was that went up his nose!

There's a strangles vaccine that is injected but it's known for its severe site reactions which is why a lot of folks don't use it. There's and IN (intranasal) version called, Pinnacle?, I think. Yup, it's Pinnacle IN by Pfizer. Pinnacle I.N. Pfizer (Ft Dodge) (Vaccines - Horse Respiratory)

It's a pain to huff up the horses nose but it beats having to hot & cold pack a site reaction for days.

Always give an IN vaccine last, after the IM vaccines.....I've heard horror stories of people giving the IN, getting it on their hands, or the horse sneezes, contaminates the administers hands etc....he then delivers an IN strangles vaccine via cross contamination IM!!!!!......not goo to have a horse get an IN via IM!!!!

The intranasal is Rhino. At least here.

The intranasal for dogs is Bordetella. And you have no idea how awful it is squirting a cc of liquid up a little chihuahua's nose. I swear I feel like I'm gonna drown it, lol.

I've never seen an intranasal Rhino out here. I've heard Flu is also available via IN but not actually seen it. I've used the Pinnacle for strangles though, so I know it's available here.

I do believe it's a Rhino/Influenza.

I've never seen or heard of a Strangles vaccine.

I didn't do the strangles because I read that it can actually give strangles. Does not sound good to me. You can google a list of core vaccines for your area. Core=the must haves. Everything else is up to you and could be overkill.
