Once again we have been the grateful recipients of our annual vaccine donation. This year, Boehringer Ingelheim (Canada) Ltd. generously stepped forward to offer their assistance in having our entire herd of 45 horses vaccinated with one of their VeteraTM vaccines, Vetera Gold™ . The VeteraTM line of equine vaccines provide combinations that include West Nile virus, Eastern and Western Encephalomyelitis, Influenza, Herpes and Tetanus.
As with previous years, this donation would not have been possible without the assistance of racetrack veterinarian, and long-time LongRun supporter Dr. Brian Van Arem, who donated the Rabies vaccination to our herd, and vet tech assistants Shelley McAuley and Gwyn Rucker who donated their time and services as well.
Thank you to everyone who got involved to allow this donation to take place – Stay tuned for our fall newsletter to read more about this donation and the individuals involved who made it happen!
