On Site Coggins Testing
We have a federally accredited Coggins Laboratory on site. Therefore, your Coggins tests can be run with results the same day!
A Coggins test is screening for Equine Infectious Anemia, a viral disease that can be deadly. Unfortunately, there is no vaccine or cure for it. If a patient survives the disease, they will always carry it and may become sick again if they are stressed. Some horses just seem to be carriers, never getting sick themselves.
Along with a health certificate, a negative Coggins test is required for horses that ravel interstate. Also, many shows and sale barns require all horses be tested to prevent the spread of this deadly disease.
If you have any questions about the Coggins test or Equine Infectious Anemia, contact us today (641)394-5584.
