Other Information

Veterinary/Health Requirements: Negative Coggin no older than January 1st, 2014. US horses: Each horse entering Canada from the USA must be tested with negative results for Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA), using
either the AGID or ELISA test, within 6 months of entry into Canada (see further note below), and requires an original US Origin Health Certificate (VS FORM 17-145) certifying the date of EIA test and that the horse was inspected and found healthy within 30 days of entry into Canada. Be sure to use the US Origin Health Certificate as opposed to the Interstate Health Certificate. The VS FORM 17-145 is issued by an accredited veterinarian and must be endorsed by the USDA veterinarian in the state of origin. Horses can enter Canada from the USA at any port of entry. Your health certificate is inspected and released by Canada Border Services Agency officers (Canada Customs). They frequently keep a copy – so photocopy 1 or 2 extra copies. Keep a copy of your health certificate so you can return to the USA. The VS FORM 17-145 is valid for up to 90 days for return to the USA provided the horse has been at recognized exhibitions/competitions in Canada during the entire stay and provided that the EIA test is still valid, i.e. the horse must have been tested within 6 months of the date of return to the USA. Paperwork for horses returning to the USA within 30 days of entering Canada are inspected and released by US Customs officers. Only horses returning to the USA after a stay of over 30 days in Canada must be inspected by a USDA veterinarian at the port of entry to the USA
