Equine Flu outbreak in Ireland
Signs of flu include coughing, nasal discharge, high temperatures and swollen glands. Testing is being provided free of charge through the Irish Equine Centre and we strongly recommend that any horses displaying suspicious clinical signs be tested immediately.
In order to boost immunity in the face of this outbreak, it is advised that all horses not vaccinated in the last 6 months receive a booster vaccine. The vaccine used by us in Lisadell contains a strain appropriate for protecting horses against that which has been identified in this outbreak.
