Elisa test is the "quick" test, but is not accepted everywhere. I would suggest doing a coggins if they specifically state coggins, so that there are no hang ups.

A negative coggins is required once a year anyway if you plan to take your horse off property, so you may as well get it done.

You want the truth? You can't HANDLE the truth!

Not true. Many states do not require a current coggins to travel within the state. I am not required for travel or for owning purposes. Know your individual state laws.

Anytime I have had a coggins pulled in the US, it has been ELISA. If you import or export horses to Canada, you are required to do AGID. ELISA is a Coggins test.

Where are they not accepted? The clinic I have used for the last 15 years indicates ELISA on the test type. I've never been anywhere that indicated it had to read AGID.

That is for interstate travel not intrastate travel.

Just to clarify-- ELISA refers to the technique. :) The two techniques for detecting
EIA are ELISA and AGID. ELISAs are not as sensitive (so a low low quantity might be overlooked) but they are both valid!

No it depends on what type of machine is used at the lab. If a vet does it in house is usually the Elisa and if it is sent out to say a university it is the agid
