Day of Arrival

cem arrivalHorses that arrive at the UC Davis CEM quarantine facility have been treated and tested prior to departure from their respective countries. They are tested further at the port of entry (usually Los Angeles) for Equine Infectious Anemia, Dourine, Glanders and Equine Piroplasmosis. If results are satisfactory, they are transported under seal to UC Davis. The owner or agent arranges for transportation to and from our facility. Upon arrival, the horse(s) identification is confirmed and a general clinical inspection is performed. The CEM testing and treatment process then commences as soon as possible. A CEM staff person will contact the horse owner (or authorized agent) on the first working day following the horse's arrival at our facility to coordinate any special care needs.
