Special Horseman / Horsewoman series: Debunking Myths about Strangles - Part 3 with Dr. Melissa McKee
Part 3 of a 5-part podcast series, where our OAHN Equine Network veterinarians answer top equine professionals' questions about equine strangles.
We are joined by Ontario equine veterinarian Dr. Melissa McKee, who answers the following questions:
What are the differences between the killed and live vaccine for strangles, and are both types generally available in Ontario?
Is it safe to vaccinate horses yearly with the strangles vaccine, and is it OK to give it alongside other vaccinations?
I've heard that strangles vaccines can actually cause strangles, is that true?
I vaccinated my horse for strangles, but it still got a mild form of the disease, does this mean the vaccine isn't effective?
