    Default Merial Recombitek Vaccines...question

    I am shopping for my spring vaccine purchase for boosters for this Spring. I see Merial has a new WNV with EEE, WEE and Tetanus. I like that combination and have used the Ft. Dodge West Nile Innovator EWT for years now...to include the year I had a vaccinated filly die from EEE...so...I'm certainly interested in alternatives if they make sense.

    I see the price is quite reasonable compared to the Ft. Dodge and when you have quite a few horses, saving money is a GOOD thing.

    If I switch to the Recombitek version of this vaccine, will boosters be necessary? Do these types of vaccines using Canary Pox vector have a good reputation? I've never used them and before I hit "buy" and spend all that money, I thought I'd see what the COTH experiences has been. TIA!

    Not an answer to your question but I looked all over and could only find it in the ten dose size. I have used it in the past but with only two horses to vaccinate I had to go with something else this year.

    I have 19 here to do so that is perfect for me...gives me an extra just in case I lose a dose somehow. Only 16 are mine...the others are boarders who will share the cost with me.

    Nope, no booster needed if the horse has already been vaccinated

    Thanks JB. I didn't think so but did not want to assume incorrectly. Merial it is then.
