Does your horse need a current coggins test for Equine Infectious Anemia? We have the answer for you. Come on out March 20, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., to the Mountain Folk Center/Cherokee County Fairgrounds, in Murphy, NC and get a coggins test done with quick turn around test results. Dr. Beverly Hargus, from Animals-R-Us, 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.
