The BEF continues to urge horse owners to be vigilant for symptoms of equine flu – coughing, nasal discharge, loss of appetite, lethargy – and call their vet if they think their horses are showing signs.
They strongly recommend that owners ensure that their vaccinations are up to date – if it has been longer than six months since the last vaccination, they recommend you discuss a booster with your veterinary surgeon. As has been demonstrated in this recent outbreak, vaccinations are vital in tackling the spread of the disease. Therefore, they recommend strongly that unvaccinated horses do not mix with other horses.
Their advice remains that you MUST NOT take your horse to an event or competition if horses at your yard are unwell.
