Coggins papers and health certificates are required for transporting your horse between states and for international travel. 

The Coggins test is the federally required AGID test that determines the EIA (Equine Infectious Anemia) status of your horse.  If a horse is positive for EIA, it is not allowed to be transported unless to a specially licensed handling facility.  This test should be performed biannually (every 6 months), and owners should carry a current Coggins form at all times when transporting horses across state lines.  Most Coggins tests take several days for results so plan accordingly before you travel.  If a faster turn-around time is needed, a stat ELISA test can be performed, and results are available in 24 hours (extra charges will be applied). 

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.  For travel within the state of Nevada, you must have current valid brand inspection papers.  For more information, contact Jennifer Bartlett (State Brand Recorder) at the Bureau of Livestock Identification (775) 688-1180.
