Updated HBLB app

An update to the EquiBioSafe app has just been released with changes to EHV advice based on recent outbreaks and some minor changes to handling CEM in maiden mares. The vaccine calculator has been updated.

EquiBioSafe covers all the key elements of contagious disease prevention and control based on the important Codes of Practice for breeders and trainers. Although developed for the British market, much of the information is relevant around the world.

Sponsored by the Horserace Betting Levy Board (HBLB), the app contains both HBLB codes for breeders and NTF codes for trainers, and also some general information and links to webinars and resources relevant to all horse types.

EquiBioSafe is primarily designed for Thoroughbred breeding farm and racing stable staff, farm managers, racehorse trainers and their vets but it will be useful to all horse owners and managers and the biosecurity guidelines apply to all horse premises, large and small.
