Detection of African Horse sickness(AHS)

There has been a case of AHS which has been reported to the veterinary profession. We would like to inform the public of this outbreak and ask that owners are urgently recommended to take as many measures as possible to protect their horses from African Horse Sickness.


Taking Precautionary measures

Regrettably the vaccine which is available is not 100% protective (but should be used if available) and sadly the highest mortality occurs in young horses who have had few annual vaccinations.

Other available products that help with prevention include:

We regret that Glynn Catton and the normal team are not able to attend Fauresmith 2022. There will however be a Stride stand in the normal place at Fauresmith which will be manned by Maartin Engelbrecht. We wish to assure customers that good stocks of the normal products that are used at Fauresmith - will be available. But in order to assist in planning because we will not have the horsebox + space will be limited, if orders are transmitted to us prior to Thursday the 30 th of June, we will ensure that the ordered stock is available AND special prices will be available at the stand.
