How long for Coggins results?

Morning everyone!

I am thinking of attending a clinic June 6-9th. The problem is that they require a current Coggins. I have never had one pulled on any of my horses before, so I'm wondering how long it takes before you get results? If I can get my vet out right away what are the chances I could have the results by the clinic date?

Depends.. for us it is usually 10 days.. if your vet can speed rush the test to the lab and the results back, you might make it..

I usually get mine within 2 weeks. My vet can rush them, but it costs a pretty penny.

Call and ASK the Vet what the rush fee is and also where the nearest Coggins test facility is.
My new Vet DOES the Coggins for this area and it is 20 bux for regular and 35 for one hour.
Takes 5 days normally.

I get overnight Coggins all the time. I pay $75 for them. It is a different test that they use, ask for vet to do the ELISA test and it comes back sooner. The AGID test takes a week to ten days. Also, you can provide a fax number for the lab and they can fax you a copy of the report.

If I take my horse to his office, I can get my Coggins in less than an hour - his office is the lab for this area. I pay the same price, $25.

My Vet does the ELISA test at their own facility and its $25 for the regular 5 day and $70 on the day of! I usually just go with the 5 days and if for some reason I need it sooner than that I can call the office girls and they'll just fax me a copy. Good Luck!

Just remember sometimes you need the copy from the state and the fax copies are not acceptable.
Well to be honest a fax copy can be "messed" with.

Wink Nothing a little $$ can't cure

Well, I got hold of my vet, and of course they can get it overnight for a fee...$90. I have honestly never been asked for a Coggins before...but yeah, it's worth having current test when these clinics come along!! (Another) lesson learned.
