      Hi Ann – It would be reasonable but then there are other things I could mention. I agree that we are seeing more of PPID but we are also seeing more of other things such as suspensory injuries. Asking “Why?” is important, but let’s be honest and not jump to conclusions. I do agree we are vaccinating for more diseases than many horses are exposed to, but I have also seen horses die from tetanus and rabies – and these are horrible diseases. Always vaccinate for these. At some point we will get good research for your hypothesis, but we are not there yet,

I look forward to reading your comment! Doc T
