Alright... first off we administer our vaccines ourselves most of the time and usually just the West Nile Vaccine... We get them through our vet so everything should be good to go. This year he also gave us the rabies vaccine because it's becoming more popular in our area with skunks, coons, etc.
Here's the questions... 1) My dad and I administer the vaccines together because my horse is pretty jumpy about them. Is this normal? He sees my dad coming and he just gets all hyped up like usual but then he just HATES the shot. Is there like a safe way that we should try or is it just do it... (I live on a farm and my dad is always giving vaccines to cows... just thought that might be useful.)
2) I'm still in highschool so I don't know much about this next thing... My dad just gave the rabies shot today and there was some of the vaccine got on my horse instead of, well, you know... in the muscle. I brushed my hand of it afterwards calming my horse down because, like I said, he gets worked up about it... I told my dad and he got a tad worried because it's rabies which got me worried. I washed my hands quite alot...He now thinks I'll be fine but I just can't stop thinking about it.. I found online that rabies shots are inactivated fluid so I should be good right? I guess I just need some more confirmation. Ugh.. I am such a worry wart.
