Coggins Certificate in United States

Traveling with your horse or planning to take part in events across different states can be challenging without the right paperwork. One essential document is the Coggins certificate, which proves your horse does not carry Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), a serious and viral disease.

HVMS software offers tools that make handling these documents easier for veterinarians and horse owners alike. Learn how we can help streamline this part of your equine practice.

Understanding the Purpose of a Coggins Certificate

What is a coggins certificate?

A Coggins Certificate is proof that a horse has been tested for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) through the Coggins test. This blood test looks for EIA, a virus that can be deadly to horses and spreads easily among them.

Veterinarians do these tests and give out Coggins certificates. These papers are needed for taking horses across state lines or joining in many horse events.

Importance for Equine Health and Disease Prevention

The Coggins test is a key tool for finding out if a horse has Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), a serious viral disease that affects horses.

It’s crucial to identify horses carrying this virus with the blood test to prevent the disease from spreading among other horses. Since EIA was first found in the U.S. in the 1970s, using a diagnostic test like the Coggins helps vets and horse owners put infected animals in quarantine, protecting other horses from getting sick.
