It is not necessary to fill out the Coggins Test form if you have already completed the Health Certificate form.
A Coggins test screens the horse’s blood for antibodies against the Equine Infectious Anemia virus. Some horse owners know this disease as “Swamp Fever,” since it is often transmitted by biting insects such as flies and mosquitoes. The Coggins test is valid for 6 – 12 months depending on your state of destination. Current pictures or an accurate drawing of all markings and brands on the horse is required. If you need a Coggins test for your horse, please call our office 7-10 days prior to departure to set up an appointment for the doctor to take a blood sample. Please fill out all required fields in the Coggins form.
