Question Coggins & Vaccines

i was planning on getting my horses coggin's done is spring, however, we compete year round and some of our shows say they require a 2009 neg. coggins.

this being said do you think i should get his coggins done now, or since he has been tested in the last year and still holds a neg. 2008 i will be ok for competing?

also we do our yearly vaccinations in spring
west nile
equine influenza

what are you vaccinating against in your area?

If the shows REQUIRE current 2009 negative coggins then you have to get it done now. If you still want to hold off and get the test done with the vaccs then call the show manager/secretary and ask if a 2008, but still within the past year, coggins test could be accepted until the new blood is pulled.

I'm in Maryland and we vaccinate for everything you do except:
we don't do stangles
we do vaccinate for potomac horse fever.
i think that's it...

i make sure mine never run out. check the date on them and get the new one drawn at least a month before the 08 one runs out.

I also give potomac fever and don't give strangles. If the shows start in Spring (at least that's the case in my area), I'd do the shots/coggins in Feb - March. Coggins around here is THE MUST even for group trail rides.

Yep, that is the same with us.. a neg. test is required for everything. you cant transport a horse without a neg. coggins and i believe the law says something along the lines of if your horse is within 200 ft. of horses owned by other people you must have a neg. coggins test

i think i will get all his shots & coggins done in february before the majority of shows
