There are certain equine diseases which have a significant incubation period or carrier state. In such cases an apparently healthy horse could introduce an infection into your yard. Please be aware of horses at your yard who may have been exposed to disease whilst away from the yard for various reasons ( e.g. training, competition, breeding etc ). If a horse has been away from the yard with close contact with other horses for any reason then it is advisable to keep them in isolation and under close observation on return to the yard.
The impact of diseases such as Strangles and Equine Influenza can be devastating and several simple Bio Security measures can be put into place to help you to reduce the risk to your horses and your yard. Your Vet and the STABLEMATE by AGMA team will be happy to advise you.
QUARANTINE IS NOT JUST FOR SICK OR NEW HORSES AS HORSES WHICH HAVE LEFT THE YARD FOR ANY REASON SUCH AS TRAINING, COMPETITION OR BREEDING PURPOSES HAVE THE POTENTIAL TO BRING DISEASE BACK TO YOUR YARD.
