Strangles ?

Can a horse that is vaccinated against strangles get it?

Yes. Strangles vaccines do more to minimize the severity of disease than to prevent it. This is because of the way the bacteria attacks the body and breaks down the local/immediate defenses.

Does it have to be right at the jaw/neck? a friend of mine had a lump just below the jaw on the neck. We thought it was a bite (maybe last week) and now today it's split open and oozing. It is also hard. I asked her to take a temp.... (I know her horse is vaccinated...)

I would have a vet out and segregate the horse, personally. They're around the jaw-ish area... Ryle will explain it better, I'm sure!!

They are usually around the jaw and neck but can also form in other places as well.

I think she needs to call a vet. I just hauled two of her horses to a show in Lexington yesterday (Not that one). That would be my luck!!!!!!!

I do know she gets the vaccine. I get it twice a year.... UGH!
