Coggins Testing and Export

Please allow a minimum of 7-10 working days for coggins and export documents, ideally 10-14 days to be safe. Once the blood is collected and our veterinarians have filled out the necessary paperwork, the samples are sent to the lab in Saskatoon (2-3 days), the lab performs the testing and mails the forms back to us (another 2-3 days), at this point we can complete the export documents and send them to the CFIA office in Edmonton for endorsement before they are sent back to us for you to pick up (2-4+ days). So as you can see it's quite a process! Keep in mind that we are currently booking 2-3 weeks in advance, so plan a good month ahead if possible. It always helps speed up the process if you have your documentation in order. We also need to examine the horse and record the markings so please make sure blankets are removed and mud is cleaned off of the legs. 

We will need the following information for coggins testing:

  • Owner's name and address
  • Animal's location - legal land description
  • Birth date or age (estimates are okay)
  • Registration number (if applicable)
  • Tattoo, brand, and microchip information (if applicable)
  • Any other identification numbers or information (if applicable)

For exportation we will need the following:

  • Name of both consignee and consignor (may be the same in many cases)
  • Address of the US destination
  • Address of Canadian premises of origin (mailing and physical address)
  • Microchip information and horse passport number (if applicable)
