Notice to Horse Owners: An agreement between Idaho, Oregon and Washington exempting Coggins testing for transport of horses across state lines has been lifted. According to Idaho State Department of Agriculture officials, horses being transported between the three states will now be required to have a Coggins test from an accredited veterinarian in the last 12 months. The rule is currently being processed through state government channels.
The agreement is being removed because of positive tests found in Idaho and neighboring states. State veterinary officials believe it is no longer appropriate to keep the testing exemption in place. For more information contact the Idaho State Department of Agriculture or the Idaho Horse Council.
