Does your horse need a current coggins test for Equine Infectious Anemia or you need one soon and don’t have time to wait on the results? We have the answer for you. Come on out March 18 from 10AM to 3PM to the Cherokee County Fairgrounds in Murphy, NC and get a coggins test done with only a few days to wait. Dr. Beverly Hargus will be the veterinarian providing the shots and test. Major shots like East-West Tetanus; Rabies; Rhino Flu; and West Nile will also be available. Does your horse need its teeth floated? This can be done on-site this very day.

You do not have to live in North Carolina to bring your horse. If you just want to come out and learn more it is free to come out and watch. The following are the prices for some of the services that the vet will offer:
