Recent EIA Incident In Kansas

Dr. Justin Smith, KDA Animal Health commissioner recently stated: “A properly completed Coggins test form that is filled out in its entirety is vital and required for an Equine Infectious Anemia result to be a valid official test. This has never been more evident than during the recent 2017 EIA incident in Southwest Kansas.”

Coggins testing reminder:

  • To increase animal disease trace-ability, samples submitted to KSVDL for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA) testing must be accompanied with a fully completed EIA submission (Coggins test) form.

  • KSVDL will no longer be able to report the results submitted with incompletely filled-out forms until the forms are returned to the submitting veterinarian for completion.

If you have any questions, please call KSVDL Client Care at 866-512-5660
