Horses must enter an LVI approved isolation prior to export — at least 30 days. The following blood tests and swabs must be carried out prior to export:

  • Vaccinations — between 15 & 30 days prior to export EHV & FLU
  • Coggins — within 30 days of export
  • Piroplasmosis CFT — within 30 days of export
  • EVA — 2 tests 14 days apart
  • CEM — 3 sets of swabs taken on days 1, 3 & 7
  • WORM — within 30 days of export
  • SWITCH (ectoparasite treatment) — within 30 days of export

All tests must show a negative result; if all horses are passed as fit to travel by the vet a health certificate will be signed off and completed so that the horses can be exported.

All blood testing and swabbing prior to shipment will be co-ordinated by BBA Shipping, as will all export paperwork. Any further details can be obtained from our office. Our specialist advisers for Argentina are Sally Goldsmith and Laura Monger.
