Transporting horse to Ohio, health cert question

I'm selling a horse that will be transported from Kentucky to Ohio. The horse has a current coggins and a 30 day health cert for inter-state travel.

The lady buying the horse told me that to bring a horse into Ohio the horse must have its temperature taken at the time of examination and written on the health certificate. This seems excessive to me and I was wondering if anybody has any experience with this rule? I don't even see a place on the certificate to put the temperature.

Never heard that before. talk to your vet and find out about that. I just took horses to FL and GA not to long ago and they just needed the health cert and coggins but nothing about the temp was on it I think.

The vitals (T/P/R) Temperature, pulse and respiration are part of a general exam that should be performed prior to a vet issuing a health certificate.

Thanks for the replies. I can see that it would be part of the exam, but I would think that for the horse to "qualify" for the health certificate, the temperature would have to be normal, you know? Requiring the temperature to be written down seems like it's saying that your vet doesn't know what he's doing!

I have a health cert for KY (as my horse and I live here now) and there's a place that my vet wrote in a temperature...
