West Nile vaccine protecting animals


With concern over the West Nile Virus growing, we want to look into the impact the mosquito born virus has on animals.

Other than humans, birds and horses are the most vulnerable populations to the virus.

Some local stables are taking precautions, spraying barns with pesticides.

Treating a sick horse can cost hundreds, even thousands of dollars.

Fortunately, there is a much cheaper alternative, a West Nile vaccine. 

Veterinarian Dr. Patrick Young from the Athletic Horse Clinic talks with us about how to keep our animals happy and healthy.
