Arizona Accepts Six-Month Equine Health Certificates

by | Jul 23, 2020 | Blog, Featured | 0 comments

Arizona state animal health officials now accept six-month health certificates for equine interstate movement. The Extended Equine Certificate of Veterinary Inspection (EECVI) program, launched by a number of state animal health officials in 2019, now has 31 US states participating.

EECVIs allow horse owners to move for up to six months, instead of the 30 days a regular health certificate provides. Through the GVL software platform, users create an EECVI, submit it to their state animal health official and provide owners with online access to retrieve their travel permits 24/7.

Why acceptance of EECVI continues to grow among veterinarians, horse owners and state animal health officials

Many veterinarians expect to see an influx in health certificate requests when it’s safe to travel again. Providing clients with EECVIs over the next couple of months may help ease that burden on practices. 

Our customer success and product teams work continuously to gain user feedback to understand what they like about our platform, as well as what we can update to better meet their needs. 

“We continue to hear from veterinarians and owners how smoothly EECVIs work,” Michaela said. “Not only can clients log their travel plans themselves, but they enjoy having the freedom to travel for different events in various states without needing to get a new health certificate every month.”

    Here’s what we hear about EECVIs from veterinarians and clinic staff: 

    • Super easy process for the veterinarian, client and state animal health official.
    • Clients love the value of a six-month health certificate with one vet visit. 
    • Simple photo upload and data collection through GVL HorseSync app.
    • Follow up and communication with clients is easier than ever.
