Your horse’s health begins in it’s gut, and wellness – or lack thereof – can affect it’s behavior and trainability as well as it’s physical well-being. Resistance under saddle, girthiness and poor attitude can signal gut trouble along with the more common signs like weight loss, poor appetite, and diarrhea.
Knowing if your horse is suffering from ulcers or other digestive tract conditions is the first step in managing its GI health. The SUCCEED® Equine Fecal Blood Test™ will help your veterinarian in diagnosing any underlying conditions or other serious GI problems, including both gastric and colonic ulcers.
Improving Veterinarian’s Ability to Diagnose GI Conditions
It’s important that your veterinarian make a complete and accurate diagnosis as quickly as possible. While endoscopy can be used to identify gastric ulcers in a horse’s stomach, that still leaves 90 percent of the horse’s digestive tract unseen. The SUCCEED® Equine Fecal Blood Test™ is the first objective diagnostic tool that allows your veterinarian to identify problems in the equine hindgut as well as the foregut.
The SUCCEED® FBT tests equine fecal matter for specific components of blood that indicate a problem in either the foregut (stomach and small intestine) or hindgut (colon and cecum) – or both. It is simple to use right in your barn and returns results in minutes.
If you have concerns about your horse’s digestive health, ask your vet about the SUCCEED® Equine Fecal Blood Test today.
The SUCCEED® FBT is for veterinary use only, for use as a diagnostic aid. The SUCCEED® FBT only provides information to aid in the diagnosis, and it’s your veterinarian’s job to provide the appropriate diagnosis and recommend a course of treatment. Discuss your options with your veterinarian, and always consult your vet for any health concerns you might have regarding your horse.
