If the foal misses out on the mother's colostrum, they may miss out on immunity from the mother. In this case the foal didn't get colostrum and her IGG tests were poor. She had two plasma infusions to help her immune system. The vet wanted her to have her vaccinations earlier.
What's the safest earlier age a foal can be vaccinated against tetanus and strangles?
Can one be given more safely earlier than the other?
note: I will go with the vet's instructions, I find it an interesting question to understand the why
