Is there a vaccination for Equine Distemper?
Equine Distemper, also called "Strangles", can be vaccinated against, however the vaccines available are not highly effective at protecting against the disease and come with a higher risk of serious adverse reactions than other equine vaccines. In fact, vaccination against Strangles is only recommended for horses at high risk. It is therefore recommended that horse owners discuss the risks vs. rewards of vaccinating against Strangles with their veterinarian and take other steps such as quarantine and disinfection of buckets and feeders to help reduce the risk of infection with the bacteria that causes Strangles.
What is equine distemper and can it be cured?
Equine Distemper is the same thing as strangles (the common name), it is a disease that causes swelling in the nasal tissue as well as pus filled abcesses in the lymph nodes. Most times it works itself out when the abcesses rupture and then the horse recovers without a problem, the only reason to treat it with anitbiotic or by draining the abcess is when a horse is doing very badly and if not treated will die. There are many websites on the subject and it would be worth your while to look some up. I hope this has helped.
