We have all heard over the past couple of months the threat of the mosquito spreading viruses. Several cities in the Hampton Roads area have had mosquitoes test POSITIVE for Eastern Equine Encephalitis (EEE). It is the highest number that has been seen in Chesapeake since the data has been collected for the virus since 2003. We are also continuing to see West Nile Virus (WNV) thoughout the southern United States.

The spread of these viruses will likely continue throughout the remainder of the mosquito season in early fall. We highly recommend to vaccinate your horses for the diseases spread by mosquitoes early. Prevention is your best defense. Give us a call to schedule your horse's vaccine booster today.
