Other tests for travelling
For the international transport of equids virological/ serological tests may be required. These are
- the COGGINS-Test (agar gel immune diffusion, AGID) to show that the animal is free from antibodies against equine infectious anemia virus (EIAV).
- Testing for antibodies against the equine arteritis virus (EAV) (serum neutralization assay) may be required.
Both tests are offered by the diagnostic laboratory. For questions concerning the regulations for entry please contact the responsible authorities of the import countries.
