Annual Coggins Testing Steeles Tavern, VA

Annual Coggins Testing

A Coggins test is a simple blood test that is used to help prevent the spread of Equine Infectious Anemia. It is sent to the laboratory for analysis.

Equine Infectious Anemia is 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.

We use the Global Vet Link Platform for all coggins tests. This allows ease of use to the owner as you are able to access your coggins from any smart device! Also its takes 5-7 business days to get your standard coggins results. Faster results can be read but you need to notify the staff prior to the test being sent out.

Vaccinations Steeles Tavern, VA


Since horses have different vaccination needs, depending on where they live, if they travel, and what they do, we recommend discussing your horse’s vaccination schedule with us. Together we can start a schedule that will work for you and your new horse.

Horses typically don’t get vaccinations until they are several months old, depending on their needs. Some vaccinations are started at four months old and need to be boostered three to four weeks later. Some vaccinations are not given until a horse is five to six months old. Most of these also need to be boostered three to four weeks later.
