Signs are caused by infection of the respiratory tract. More severe signs such as pneumonia can occur in some individuals particularly foals.
Supporting KBHH will make you part of a national campaign that brings together the vet, yard owner and horse owner to ensure best practices are shared and adopted.
By protecting and vaccinating your horse and encouraging others to do the same you can help protect all horses by reducing the spread of the disease.
Horses become infected with strangles by direct (horse to horse) and indirect (through contaminated equipment or personnel etc)
