    A quote from this site (http://www.drugs.com/vet/pneumabort-k-1b-can.html):
    Quote:
    Pneumabort-K+1b Indications

    For the vaccination of healthy horses as an aid in the prevention of respiratory diseases caused by the EHV 1p and EHV 1b viruses as well as for use in pregnant mares as an aid in the prevention of abortion due to EHV 1 infections.
    It is not effective against the neurological form of EHV-1, but it is against the respiratory variety.

    I take it you missed the fact that most of these outbreaks are of the NEUROLOGICAL form of EHV-1? (Or EHM as you call it - same thing) The vaccine doesn't help.

    Actually the AAEP calls it EHM, not a term I made up.

    Equine Herpesvirus Resources - AAEP

    And by the way the op had stated there was no vaccine for EHV-1 which is simply untrue. There is a vaccine for EHV-1 but not the mutated, so to speak, form of it which is EHM.

    I know EHM is not a made up term - I was just pointing out that most of the articles I have read on this current outbreak are discussing neurological EHV-1 which is the same as EHM and the two horses that died were neurological EHV-1 - so in the scheme of the topic being discussed here - there is no vaccine that would help these horses. Yes there is a EHV-1 vaccine but it is ONLY good against the respritory version.

    Well the link I posted actually talked about the vaccine and it's effectiveness against the neurological form.

    "The more potent EHV-1 vaccines have been shown to reduce nasal shedding and in some cases reduce viremia. These products may therefore have some theoretical value against EHM (by reducing viremia), and certainly against spread of the virus. "

    Yep, the shot does not protect against the neurological side of it. :)
