Zoetis UK: Update on Equine Herpes Virus and Rotavirus vaccines

Zoetis UK has announced that their Equip® EHV 1,4 vaccine is now fully available. Equip EHV 1,4 is licensed for the active immunisation of horses to reduce clinical signs due to infection with Equine Herpesvirus 1 and 4 and to reduce abortion caused by EHV-1 infection. 


Zoetis has previously communicated directly to vets to inform them that Equip® Rotavirus will be out of stock from the end of November 2017 until mid-2018. During this time an imported vaccine for Rotavirus, will be available to provide an interim solution until supply is restored.


Practices wishing to purchase the alternative imported Rotavirus vaccine will need to apply to the VMD for a Special Treatment Certificate (STC).


Zoetis would like to acknowledge the concern and frustration this causes our customers and reassure the equine community that we are working diligently to restore Equip Rotavirus supply as soon as possible.



Please contact your Zoetis account manager or Zoetis technical team for further information.
