Why are they recalling it?

Whatever course you decide upon, there is always someone to tell you that you are wrong. There are always difficulties arising which tempt you to believe that your critics are right. To map out a course of action and follow it to an end requires courage.

I think some horses have gone into anaphalactic shock (sorry spelled it the best I could).

Mine have already gotten the shot, didn't have any issues that I noticed...

Yes we sent back all our vaccine from the clinic yesterday. Seems some horses are going into anaphylactic shock and die when they get the injection. So they have recalled the vaccine. If you horse already has been given the vaccine(like mine have been) and it didn't bother them immediately, then you shouldn't have any problems.
Scary for sure

Wow that is scary! Both my horses had WN shots last month too! Both were ok , it has been a few weeks...anything else I need to look for?

Horses and children, I often think, have a lot of the good sense there is in the world.

After talking to a few people today and posting on some other places, it seems there has been two deaths and a miscarriage traced to this stuff, several people have had no ill effects from it.

Let just pray those that have used it will have no problems with their Horses

It may be a good idea to sticky this for a bit.

I'm not arguing with you, I'm just explaining why I'm right.

Nothing sucks more than that moment during an argument when you realize you're wrong.


It's not always what you say but what they hear.

I used some this year with no issues....

Still probably better then Fort Dodge's 11% reaction rates when I researched it 4 years ago ...

I have been called the NSC Nazi more then once ... I hate traditional feed methods of loading our horses up on grains and junk food :)
