Immunization and Deworming Schedule

Mare owners should maintain a rigorous preventive health care program that keeps their mares in the best physical condition for gestation and lactation. Preventive immunization and deworming schedules vary in the mare depending on her reproductive status. Most importantly, the pregnant mare should receive vaccinations for infectious diseases during the last 60 days of gestation. This results in an adequate antibody titer in the mare's colostrum that will provide passive immunity for the foal when it nurses (important because there is no active transfer of immunity across placental membranes). Specific diseases the broodmare should be immunized against include tetanus, encephalomyelitis, rhinopneumo-nitis, and influenza, but mare owners should seek the advice of a veterinarian familiar with diseases endemic to their locale. Treatment of broodmares with anthelmintics prior to parturition helps to decrease parasite infestation in the foal.[5]
