Your progress will be saved when using that method, and you can come back later to continue creating the form on our website and ultimately create the PDF needed for lab submission.

Our agency is now hosting a voluntary microchip registry to aid in locating lost or missing equine. Accredited veterinarians licensed in New Mexico may use this registry to enter the owner contact information at the time that a horse is microchipped.  Use the link below to go to the Equine Microchip Registry page

The New Mexico Livestock Board includes the offices of the State Veterinarian, whose team of veterinarians collaborate with various government and private sector partners to ensure that our state remains free of diseases affecting livestock.  When there are any developments such as a disease event which may affect the import or export of livestock, these are communicated here on our "What's Hot" page. Also on that page is a way to sign up to receive e-mail notifications from us.

Click here and then use the Page Menu at the top to see requirements by animal type. For this, you would normally use the Import / Export / Exhibition main menu choice. Any known restrictions imposed by other states on NM exports are listed there as well, but as always, you can get the most reliable information about that by contacting the state of destination.
