When traveling with your horses, every state require a negative EIA testing also known as Coggins papers and health certificates are required for transporting your horse between states and for international travel. The Coggins test is the federally required test that determines the EIA (Equine Infectious Anemia) status of your horse. If a horse is positive for EIA, it is prohibited from interstate travel transported unless to a specially licensed handling facility. This test should be performed whenever transporting horses across state lines. Most Coggins tests take 4-7 days for results to arrive in the mail so plan accordingly before you travel. Health certificates are required for entry into other states and for most shows. These forms require a current Coggins and brief physical examination to ensure the shipping of healthy animals. A health certificate is valid for 30 days. For international travel, health certificates are more involved and require the signature of the federal veterinarian. Please allow adequate time for the preparation of these papers before you travel. Contact us for any changes on the requirements of you state of destination.
Permanently identify your horse with a microchip or freeze branding. The microchip is implanted under the skin along the top side of the horse’s neck. Most sale barns and auctions across the country have horses checked for microchips before they enter the sale ring. Freeze branding, is the use of liquid nitrogen to burn the cells producing white hairs in the shape of your registered brand. This provides a permanent identification and a visible deterrent to theft.
