An extremely unpleasant disease to witness and is usually fatal. It is caused by bacteria found in soil and horse droppings, which can enter the body through wounds or punctures in the hoof. Horses will develop muscle stiffness resulting in a “rocking-horse” stance and “lock-jaw”. If the horse survives tetanus treatment is likely to be intensive, prolonged and extremely costly.

Equine Influenza

A highly infectious viral disease which affects the respiratory tract and lungs. Widespread throughout the horse population and spread directly horse-to-horse or via contaminated people, tack or feed. Signs include a dry, harsh cough, fever, nasal discharge and lethargy. Following a bout of ‘flu, horses may need complete rest for at least 6 weeks, however they can often be secondary complications which may require longer treatment.
