Hi, Dr. Dan, I haven’t been vaccinating my horses but some holistic people I know say that tetanus is one shot they would give. What are your thoughts on this? I have never heard of a horse or a human getting tetanus (but then, I may live in a sheltered world!). Also, if I do choose to give the vaccination, do I have to give a booster a few weeks later, or would the main vaccination be sufficient?
Personally I don’t give. I would however, give a homeopathic dose of hypericum or Ledum should they have a wound etc.
BUT as you know I am not the norm and “normal” vets would say I am nuts perhaps… I have only seen one case of such anyway in 27 years of practice and that horse was vaccinated!
