    How long are coggins tests generally good for? I am wondering because I heard three years but that seems like WAY too long for it to be good for.....

    I think its 1 for shipping & showing & 2 in general, not shipping/ showing. Some places want it to be in the past six mos or same calendar year.

    My vet told me a coggins is good for 1 year and a health certificate is good for 30 days.

    The test itself is only good for the day the blood was drawn ;)

    As for how recent it has to be for any given event, that depends on the event. Some places want a negative test within the last 6 months.
