Health Certificates / Passports / Export
Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (health certificates) are required for the transportation of most animals. Depending on where and why you are moving an animal there are international, federal, and state regulations that must be met prior to any transportation of livestock across jurisdictions. Even within an individual state, movement to a horse show, state park, or equine event may require a health certificate and/or a current negative coggins test. Requirements for a health certificate may vary depending on state of destination; always check with our office prior to traveling and don’t wait until the last moment.
