Urgent help -hepitius
I am looking for some advice please.
My friend called today to say that one of their mares is ill with Hepititus and that any horse that has been in contact with her also needs to be checked for the disease. My horse has...in April my horse did his stallion job with the mare , etc.
My question is this, the vet has said the mare is very sick and has a 90% chance of dying.
As we are in a foreign country it is sometime very difficult to get the proper English translations, what type of Hepititus can a horse catch and how?
My friends think the vet recommended my horse also be checked for hepitius and he will proabably need a vaccine. Does this sound right?
Please help it is the first time I have come across this. Will the horses stabled at the same place as my horse also need to be checked?
