Influenza is a viral infection affecting the respiratory system. It can be very debilitating causing high fever, nasal discharge and coughing. Influenza cases do occur in Sussex and vaccination is the main way to control this disease. It is important even for horses that are not competing or mixing with others, particularly veterans, as the virus is airborne.
We endeavour to inform you when your horse's boosters are due. However, it is the responsibility of the owner or trainer to ensure that their horse meets the requirements demanded by the governing body of their sport or competition.
