Re: RC: Re:Vaccination/Sarcoids Decision

Dear Linda
PS Almost forgot; I also give the Rhino I to mares during pregnancy to
avoid abortion on the every other month interval as recommended and if
we are having a really rough winter, I have been known to step up the
flu/rhino vacs with mares and their foals--- I HATE foal pneumonia which
my vet attributed primarily to herpes infections stemming from the
mare--- since I started doing that, I haven't had a foal pneumonia since
(lost 2 foals before that--- never want to go through that again) and it
is common in the Paso Robles area where we have been known to have very
hot days and cold nights.
