As the winter months come to an end and we gear up for the busy spring season, it's important to remember to get your horse up-to-date on all their vaccinations and deworming.‍

At Countryside, we follow the core vaccination guidelines of the American Association of Equine Practitioners (AAEP). The AAEP considers these vaccines essential to maintaining the health and well being of the average horse and some are even necessary to safeguard human health. Core vaccinations function to decrease the severity of specific diseases or to prevent them altogether. Unfortunately, there are no effective means of treatment for many of the diseases we vaccinate for and these diseases are nearly always fatal. That is why our goal is to provide the very best in preventive health care and keep your horse as healthy and disease-free as possible.

Ask about our Annual Wellness Plans. Stay ahead of your horse's health and save money. Request an appointment or call us at 770-788-7387
Why Should a Veterinarian

Vaccinate Your Horse?

1
Over Vaccinating: We develop a customized plan for each horse based on their risk, age, and exposure. We will not administer a vaccine unless your horse truly needs it, thus eliminating the risk of over-vaccinating.
2
Reputable Source: In order to be safe and effective, vaccines need to be appropriately handled (stored at the proper temperature), given in the right location, and administered in the correct dosage. Having your horse vaccinated by a veterinarian means you've entrusted this process to someone educated in the proper handling and administration of vaccines. In the rare event of an adverse reaction, our veterinarians are also equipped to manage the event. Online pharmacies and farm supply stores are not able to provide this support or guarantee that the product has been handled correctly at all times.
3
Guaranteed Product. The companies that manufacture vaccines offer to cover the costs of diagnostic tests and treatment if your horse contracts a disease it was vaccinated for. The companies will only stand behind their product if your horse was vaccinated by a licensed veterinarian. No vaccine is 100% effective and if you choose to vaccinate your own horse, you do not receive this guarantee.
