Yup Strangles is definitely on the list of must haves in my area - the barn my current horse is at has had a few cases already and they have issued an 'outbreak' in my area. And as I will be boarding her almost all barn demand that strangles be vaccinated against before they will take you.
The filly is also just turned two - so she is at a higher risk than a horse that is over 5.
Tetnus and Rabies are considered the "regular" vaccines around here, and to be honest I've never heard of anyone who isn't seriously competing getting the rhino vaccine in my area.
I've asked a friend to ask her vet when he's out doing the shots for her horse tomorrow, but I'm just wondering if anyone else has seen anything that might be negative. (her vet's been known to say anything to make an extra $) I'm asking my vet when she comes out anyway to give me Durmagel for my oh-so-clutzy gelding. But I like outside oppinions too.
