To vaccinate or not against Botulism thats the 10 million dollar question

Deciding upon vaccinating your horse is a decision that each horse owner has to make for him/herself.

The vaccination against botulism consists of 3 shots within 4 weeks of each other. To maintain the protection requires an annual booster. There are 8 types of Clostridium Botulinum. In Sweden type B, C and E exist but only type B has been found in horses. The vaccine that is used today has function against type B.

However just because one vaccinates ones horse against the disease does not mean that you can take bigger risks with the hygienic fodder quality this may still result in a sick horse.

The results from a master thesis by Jenny Bergold (2007) showed that the risk of Swedish horses being infected by botulism is rather small, only 0,3% of the Swedish horse population (in Sweden there are approximately 290 000 horses) was infected between the years of 1995-2005. Botulism is a disease that is compulsory to report to the Swedish Board of Agriculture. In all the reported cases to the animal hospitals, none could be proven to have been caused by produced toxins.

Exclusive Horse Feed forage is thoroughly analyzed for a good hygienic standard at each harvest, and the pallets are well marked for good traceability and record keeping.
