Veterinary Medical Center performs Coggins testing on horses for equine infectious anemia (EIA), commonly called swamp fever. EIA is an infectious viral disease that is transmitted from horse to horse by flies, such as horseflies or deerflies. Since the virus can be transmitted to foals, foals of affected mares can also be positive.
A certificate of a negative Coggins test is required before a horse is allowed to enter Maryland, to be stabled, boarded, exhibited or raced. A certificate of negative Coggins test must accompany the horse when sold or ownership of the horse is transferred.
You can access your Coggins tests and/or health certificates any time from any computer by clicking “owner access to digital Coggins forms via internet”.
