Annual EIA & Vaccine Clinic

North Carolina Cooperative Extension of Franklin County partners with Dr. Cole Younger, Full Circle Mobile Veterinary Service to host an annual equine & vaccine clinic. This year it will be on Saturday, Feb. 1, at the Franklin County Farmer’s Market Shelter, in Louisburg, from 1:30 to 3 p.m. FREE bags of horse feed will be given each participating horse, courtesy of area feed stores (while supplies last).

Maintaining horse vaccines and Coggins is very important to the health and well-being of the horse. By hosting this event in a central location, it allows the horse owner to save money by not having a farm call fee.
