Dr Kellon: Should i give tetnus booster


Lori Ricigliano
 

Hi - 
mya finally gets get trims this Friday - farrier had to cancel due to being sick earlier 

I feel I should give her a tetnus booster just in case he hits blood . Would this be safe ? 

The reason I’m hesitant is 2 years ago in late august I gave mya her 5 way vaccinations for the fall (not west Nile) and within 48 hours she foundered & this path we are on now is I feel because of it (the final nail in the coffin so to speak with her system was giving the vaccinations I believe ) . She wasn’t diagnosed as IR at that time but I should have seen the signs - slightly creasty neck & she was on thyroid powder. 


Should I give her the tetnus booster prior to Friday ? 

she’s now on metformin- soaked hay - rsr beet pulp - flax - photo-quench - vit e - acetyl l carnitine - Magox & TC soaked Timothy cubes - just got my hay tester yesterday so will sample our hay soon. She is in process of weaning off of bute & thyroid med .

Tetanus is typically the least likely to cause reactions. There is always a risk though when they are actively laminitic. If your trimmer follows the mark ups, you shouldn't be anywhere near live tissue but may uncover old blood.

Ok - I will err on the side of caution & not give it - we’ve come too far to have anything happen at this point . Thank you
