[RC] West Nile Virus - GarnerT

We have several people with WNV here in Bakersfield & one horse that I know
of.  I've had 8 horses vaccinated & haven't had one bad reaction yet.  The
horse that is ill is at my local vet's & he is really sick.  He thinks he'll
recover, but who knows.  I asked my vet about the bad reactions & he said
the same thing - no bad reactions from Fort Dodge, but some from the new
vaccine that you can give yourself.  In fact, one of my friends had a bad
reaction with her new horse - what are you going to do though?  The
mortality rate is so high for horses with WNV - are you going to take a
chance?  My horses have all had their shots!
