African Horse Sickness vaccination dates

15 Dec

It has come to our attention at WAHG that some clients are uncertain about the vaccination dates of their horses against African Horse Sickness.

The Western Cape falls under the African Horse Sickness Surveillance and Protection areas.

This means that horses in the Western Cape can only be vaccinated between the 1st of June and the 31st of October every year.

We need to get permission from the state vet to vaccinate a horse before we can obtain the vaccines. It is thus important that you let us know as soon as possible if you need your horse to be vaccinated against African Horse Sickness.
