Alternative Vaccination site for Anthrax

posted by Horse Owner Today    |   March 16, 2011 06:37

Q:  Where is the best place to vaccinate the animal?  The anthrax vaccine can cause swelling and soreness at the vaccination site.   I have heard that vaccinating in the chest is an option. 

A:  Vaccinating in the chest is a good option, just in case you get swelling and edema/abscess.   Swelling and edema/abscess are easier to deal with in the chest muscle.   

Reining issues pop up when the neck vaccination site has either/or swelling and edema/abscess occur.
