Travel & Showing
After 1 year, your horse will be required to take another Coggins test if it is traveling.
Yes. Because EIA (equine infectious anemia) is a painful, fatal, and easily spread disease, it is recommended that even non-travelling horses have a Coggins test. If your horse has come into contact with an infected horse, your horse should be re-tested in several months to verify any negative test results.
Because EIA is so contagious and in some cases latent, it’s important to catch the virus before it spreads to other horses. Even if your horse has tested negative, it can still contract EIA if it comes into contact with an EIA-positive horse. This dangerous situation can be prevented if all horses are tested before going out of state.
