We completely forgot abiut the 7 month Rhino vaccination until today which is about 3 weeks late for one mare and 4 days late for another. Is there any problem being that late?

Any effects?

As long as she has not come into contact with an infectious animal or is a latent carrier herself, there shouldn't be a problem. Go ahead and vaccinate now (if you haven't already).

Jos- I pulled a good one this weekend too, I gave 1ml of the Rhino to my mares instead of two ( was in the wave length of doing annual vaccines I guess ) Should I give the second part of the dosage now, which would be 4 days later? or do I need to give a full 2ml's?

Hmmm... good question! :-) And one to which I really do not have an answer. I can see "pro's" and "con's" in both.

I think if I wanted a definitive answer I'd feel inclined to contact Fort Dodge by phone at (913) 664-7000 and ask them directly - and then post their answer here for everyone, including me! :-)

Jos- I stumped you? I cannot believe it, I was sure you were the undending source of information! I'll call the folks at Dodge and see what they have to say! Back later with some answers!

Jos- you've never indicated that you knew all, "I" just thought that you did this is the first question I've ever seen come on the board that you didn't have a quick answer for.. I have a call in to Ft Dodge and am awaiting an answer for us all. Ev

Fort Dodge returned my call promptly and in this case, since it's been a short period time since the ERROR, they said to just give the addtional ml and follow up with her next vaccine at 7 months. I also questioned regarding the one mare's reaction to this vaccine, they recommended using the muscle in the back of the leg in that case (which I did) or the pectoral area but to expect more swelling if that area was used. For what it's worth, with using the leg muscle this time and a dose of Recovr, the mare had no adverse side affects. So now we are ALL just a little bit smarter for my faux paux. Ev

Wasn't for a moment suggesting that you were casting aspersions at my pristine () personage Ev!!

Thanks for the info - I had concerns about whether the lower level of antibodies developed by the initial portion would interfere with the subsequent development; and if there was a question of the immune system being "stressed" by the initial injection, which has occasionally been seen to cause issues when given to mares that were in a stressed condition.

Thanks for the definitive answer!!! :-)
