Equine Strangles is an infectious respiratory disease of horses caused by the bacteria Streptococcus equi and it is a serious ongoing problem in the UK.
The Premium Assured Strangles Scheme is an initiative launched by SRUC Veterinary Services (formerly SAC Consulting) and supported by The British Horse Society (BHS) in the battle for Strangles prevention. We also collaborate with organisations such as Redwings and AHT.
Membership is open to equine yards around the country who want to take an active role in preventing Strangles. Enjoy enhanced health status for your yard. There are three levels of scheme membership.
