The Coggins Test and Equine Infectious Anemia

Most people that have horses have heard about the Coggins test but don’t know much more than the test is required by state law. In fact, many people think the Coggins test identifies Coggins disease; however, the disease is actually named Equine Infectious Anemia (EIA). Equine Infectious Anemia (aka swamp fever) is a disease with no cure and no vaccine. It is a viral disease that attacks the horse’s immune system and is very closely related to the HIV virus in humans.
