Too often, the veterinarian’s view of the equine digestive tract tends to start – and stop – with the stomach. Of course, it’s natural for gastric issues to be at the top of the checklist when ulcers or other GI pathologies are suspected. Gastric ulcers are prevalent, especially in performance horses, and the availability of the gastric endoscope makes possible the definitive diagnosis of gastric ulceration in horses. Yet things beyond the stomach may remain much less well understood.
The SUCCEED FBT utilizes proprietary antibodies to detect occult equine blood components in a fresh fecal sample. Color lines appear on the FBT strips when equine albumin or hemoglobin are present at levels that fall within ranges carefully calibrated to reflect true pathological conditions.
Detects occult equine albumin, which reflects a source caudal to the common bile duct, or generally in the hindgut.
Detects occult equine hemoglobin, which may have originated from a source anywhere in the GI tract.
