At Dixie veterinary clinic, we understand the importance of maintaining the health of your equine companion. Equine Coggins testing and Health Certificates are essential components of keeping your horse healthy and in compliance with regulations.
Equine Coggins Testing:
Coggins testing is a diagnostic blood test that screens horses for equine infectious anemia (EIA), a potentially deadly viral disease transmitted by bloodsucking insects. Equine Coggins testing is mandatory for interstate travel and horse shows, and often required by boarding facilities and equestrian events. The test is performed by drawing a blood sample from your horse and analyzing it in a laboratory. A negative result means that your horse is free of the EIA virus and can safely travel and participate in equine events.
Health Certificates are documents that certify your horse's health status and are required for interstate travel and international transport. The certificate confirms that your horse has undergone a physical examination by a licensed veterinarian and is free of communicable diseases. It also includes vaccination records, identifying information, and any other necessary information required by the destination state or country.
At our clinic, we offer Equine Coggins testing and Health Certificates as part of our comprehensive equine health services. Our experienced veterinarians are knowledgeable about regulations and requirements for travel and events and can guide you through the process.
