Here's the situation I have--the person I purchased my mare from told me the mare was up to date on her shots, etc., and therefore, I told my vet the same. Now, the two of them have talked, and come to find out, the seller wasn't altogether honest about some things. It 'appears' that the mare wasn't vaccinated during her pregnancy like I was told she was. My question is this: Could there be any problems with her, or the foal as a result of this? From what I've been reading, the mare needs to have these vaccines for protection of the baby, and herself. I am taking the mare for her 'foal check' next month, and the vet's going to 'do his thing' but, I just wondered if any of the 'more experienced' breeders here thought there could be problems, or knew of any problems from situations like this. Yes, I know 'what's the point' in worring now but, I just wanted to know your thoughts / experiences. Thanks.

I just recently ran into this problem and my vet told me if you are in you last trimester then there is not point to give them the regular vaccination but to give them the tetanus. Now this is on a mare that is due in less than 30 days. As long as the foal gets its vaccinations then you really shouldn't have a problem. Good luck

I have this same problem and my maiden mare is due in a few weeks. So I should go ahead and give her a tetanus and when should the foal start getting vaccinated?

AAEP and the AVMA recommend vaccinating pregnant mares 4-6 weeks before due date to make sure the foal gets full immunity through the colostrum. Cathy
