year before after being vaccinated.This time she called the vet back who 
treated the horse for the allergic reaction and advised her to avoid 
vaccinating this horse ever again.(he's 19)He said next time he could die.

caused it.
Also,does anyone know why tetnus is included in so many multiple vaccines that 
are given yearly? I know human's tetnus is not given every year so do horses
