FBT and Your Practice

Because it detects gastrointestinal bleeding, helps differentiate foregut from hindgut sources, and can be used stall-side, the SUCCEED Equine Fecal Blood Test may:

  • Support a faster and more accurate diagnosis.
  • Allow vets to prescribe more targeted and effective treatments.
  • Guide further diagnostic procedures.
  • Help veterinarians monitor treatment progress.
  • Catch pathological conditions of the GI tract before they become more symptomatic.
  • Confirm the presence of pathological conditions in the GI tract, which may help explain some behavioral issues.

Antibody Technology

The FBT is a colorimetric (color change) test based on the reaction of antibodies to the presence of equine blood components hemoglobin and albumin.

Independent Research

Several independent studies into equine GI health utilizing the SUCCEED FBT are currently underway in the UK.

Succeed Fecal Blood Test

The SUCCEED Equine Fecal Blood Test is a simple, point-of-care diagnostic aid that:

  • Supports the veterinarian's diagnosis of GI tract lesions, inflammation and related pathological conditions of the equine GI tract
  • Helps differentiate the source of these proteins
  • Is quick, non-invasive, and affordable

The SUCCEED FBT helps detect and distinguish foregut from hindgut conditions by accurately detecting and isolating specific blood components – albumin and hemoglobin – from a horse’s GI tract that transit to fecal matter.

Thus, the SUCCEED FBT offers a unique tool to help equine caregivers manage the horse’s digestive health and stay ahead of issues that can affect not only health, but performance behavior and training as well.
