MERIAL AND THE ANIMAL HEALTH TRUST LAUNCH ‘EQUINE FLU AWARENESS MONTH’ IN APRIL 2016

Equine flu is an infectious disease affecting the upper respiratory tract of horses. It is prevalent in the UK with frequent outbreaks recorded over the last few years.

With ~40% of the UK leisure horse population vaccinated against equine flu, and an estimated minimum of 70% vaccination required to prevent an epidemic, Merial and the Animal Health Trust (AHT) have joined forces to launch the UK’s first Equine Flu Awareness Month in April 2016.

Chine House Veterinary Hospital is pleased to be taking part in Equine Flu Awareness Month, in conjunction with Merial Animal Health, The Animal Health Trust and the HBLB, offering a vaccination amnesty to ALL horses over 12months of age, who have either never been vaccinated or whose vaccinations have become overdue.

The ‘BACK ON TRACK’ Vaccination Amnesty offers the second dose of vaccine FREE when given as part of a primary course for customers of Chine House.

Details on how to sign up will follow soon.
