A Coggins test is a sensitive diagnostic blood test for Equine Infectious Anemia, a very serious viral disease transmitted to horses by bloodsucking insects.
Having a negative coggins test is required for interstate transport as well as to enter some boarding facilities and horse competitions. The test results expire one year after the blood draw in the state of Colorado, but 6 months in some other states such as Oregon. The test is run on a blood sample with results reporting out in 5-7 days. Partnering with Global Vet Link we are able to provide you 24 hour access to your digital results. This report is printed with a photograph of your horse as opposed to hand-drawn markings (see below).

A health certificate is a legal document signed by your veterinarian attesting to absence of signs of infectious disease in your horse. This certificate is destination specific and requires the address and phone number of such destination.
In most states, a health certificate requires a veterinarians exam within 10 days of departure and is valid for 30 days after it is issued. It is required for interstate travel, and most instances when a horse is traveling intrastate as well.
Be sure you know the requirements of your destination to ensure a stress-free trip.
