Six-month horse health certificate program now includes Indiana

Equine owners in Indiana have a new paperless option for interstate travel with their horses, as the state now accepts Extended Equine Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (EECVI).

By allowing the use of EECVIs, the Indiana State Board of Animal Health (BOAH) offers equine veterinarians and owners more flexibility while continuing to maintain accurate records for animal disease traceability.

EECVIs allow horse owners to travel to multiple destinations (i.e., shows and trail rides) for up to six months, rather than the 30 days a regular health certificate provides.

Veterinarians issue an EECVI to their client within the GVL platform, which is automatically sent to state animal health officials in participating states. Horse owners can then retrieve their travel permits online and log their destination information before each trip.

If you have questions about your state participating, please contact your state animal health official.
