Zoetis Equip® Artervac Supply Issue

9 months ago

23rd February, 2023 10h11


Zoetis Ltd today announced that there will be a supply issue with Equip® Artervac.

Equip Artervac is a part of the Zoetis Equip range of vaccines. It is indicated for the active immunisation for horses against equine viral arteritis (EVA) to reduce the clinical signs and shedding of the virus in nasal secretions following infection.

The current inventory of Equip Artervac has an expiry date of March 29, 2023 and Zoetis is not expecting a new batch to be available until the end of September 2023.

We have been working closely with the relevant organisations to implement a plan to mitigate the impact to breeders.

The Thoroughbred Breeders Association has published advice for a blood sampling scheme. Please visit:

Please note this requires action two weeks after the most recent EVA vaccination so please ensure you familarise yourself with these guidelines in plenty of time.

We sincerely apologise for any inconvenience that may be caused with this supply issue. Zoetis confirms its commitment to providing further information as soon as possible.

The VMD and DEFRA have been notified about the situation.

For further information contact your Zoetis Account Manager or the Zoetis Technical Team on [email protected] or 0345 300 8034
