Okay so i ordered the 5,7,9 shots online (they are twice as expensive from the vet)My vet says that they are the exact same thing she gives. So the package arrived yesterday, (in Houston it is 95 degrees)but my husband did not tell me they arrived and left them out. i found them this morning. Although they are not hot they are worm. So my question is, Is it safe to give my mares the shot even though they got worm? i am trying to contact my vet but she has a second job at a clinic during the day and is not answering the phone. If anyone knows i would be thankful for the information.

While it is probably safe to give them, there is a fair chance that they will not offer the protection that you require. If you want to be sure, reorder them and make sure they are delivered refrigerated ("on ice") this time, and get them in the 'fridge immediately upon receipt.
It's one of the drawbacks of ordering vaccines from cut-price companies by mail order...
I didn't even know it was possible. I might have considered doing it myself if I'd known, until this sadly. I have no idea of the efficacy so I'm just here to say I hope it works out for you either way!
