Most horses survive colic with no long-term detrimental impact to their health, provided they are treated promptly and properly. Still, the disease is a serious one, and is the lead- ing cause of death in horses outside of old age, according to Hoyt Cheramie, DVM, MS, Diplomate, American College of Veterinary Surgeons and manager, Large Animal Veterinary Services, Merial, Ltd. Once a horse suffers a case of colic, it is that much more susceptible to future episodes, he says.

The downside of using combination West Nile vaccines, however, is that they stimulate a lower immune response then monovalent West Nile vaccines.
