Equine Infectious Anemia (Coggins) Testing and Export Certification

Dr. Holt is accredited to provide this service for clients who are travelling to the USA. Please allow 5 business days prior to the date you plan on leaving to ensure that all the laboratory testing and federal endorsement of your export certificates can be completed on time. Typically, this can all be done quicker than in 5 days but from time to time weather delays or transport delays beyond our control can hamper the process.

Please not the following information is required. Having this information ready on the day of the health examination and/or blood collection will help to expedite the process:

EIA testing (Coggins)

  1. The owner’s name, address, and phone number
  2. The legal land description of the horse’s location
  3. The horses name, age, breed, color, and markings
  4. Any brands, tattoos, or other identification

Export Certification (Health Papers)

  1. Expected travel date
  2. Duration of time the horse will be in the USA
  3. The original or a copy of the negative EIA testing (Coggins) form
  4. Name of the owner of the horse (consignee)
  5. Name of the person taking the horse across the border (consignor)
  6. Address of the US destination
  7. Address of the Canadian premises of origin of the horse.

If you have any questions regarding the export certification process, please contact Dr. Holt at here at the clinic for further discussion.

Referral for more advanced diagnostic and treatment options

We will help you get in touch with the appropriate veterinary services for issues beyond the scope of what we offer. For example, if your horse requires radiology, ultrasonography, endoscopy, advanced dentistry, advanced surgery, or other advanced services, Dr. Holt will help you get in contact with veterinary facilities that offer these options.
