THIS IS FOR NEW BOARDING HORSES AND IS THE PROCEDURE WE FOLLOW BEFORE WE RELEASE A HORSE INTO THE HERD AT EC
Two weeks prior to moving to EC Quarantine/Transition barn, complete vaccine
records and coggins must be submitted to Dusty LaBeth. These records will be
reviewed by EC staff and Dr. Maureen Sutter of Red Oak Animal Hospital. All horses
will need to receive a microchip to verify identification. (EC recommends the Home
Again Temp Scan Microchip.)
If not previously vaccinated with strangles a strangles titer is recommended. Will not
vaccinate if results are greater than 1:3200.
Prior to moving to Quarantine/Transition barn a guttural pouch endoscopy will need
to be performed at Red Oak Animal Hospital to collect a sample to submit for
Strangles PCR and culture (EC will pay for the initial guttural pouch endoscopy and
testing.) Ideally horse should leave directly from Red Oak Animal Hospital to EC
Quarantine/Transition barn, where the horse will be quarantined for 3 weeks.
Once PCR and culture results are negative, the horse can be given the intranasal
Strangles vaccine. If horse hasn’t been previously vaccinated with Strangles, the horse
will need to be given a booster in 2-3 weeks. Ideally, these vaccines will be given at the
Quarantine/Transition barn before moving to EC.
A general health exam will be done by Dr. Sutter before moving to EC (EC will pay for
