Equine Influenza: Requirements for mares visiting Tweenhills
The following is a message from Tweenhills owner and manager David Redvers regarding the equine influenza case and how it will affect protocol at Tweenhills:
“On veterinary advice we are now insisting that all mares visiting Tweenhills have received an Equine Influenza booster vaccine within 6 months of proposed arrival at the stud. This includes walk-in mares as well as those boarding at the farm and passports will be checked before mares are allowed to disembark.
Equine flu symptoms including high temperature, coughing and/or nasal discharge should be immediately reported to your vet and no attempt should be made to move affected animals or those in contact until they are given the all clear.
Thank you for your assistance in this matter.”
