The Research and Development Behind the SUCCEED® Equine Fecal Blood Test

The SUCCEED® Equine Fecal Blood Test™ is new and improved and now shipping! We’ve done extensive research and testing to create the best test kit available. It is highly accurate and sensitive and can help differentiate gastric from colonic ulceration related digestive tract abnormalities.

The SUCCEED® FBT™ allows you to conduct a simple, cost effective test stall-side in minutes. The test allows for a quick objective measure of foregut and hindgut lesions and related conditions without having to rely on other subjective testing. SUCCEED® FBT™ requires very little equipment – a fecal sample and about 3 ounces of clean tap water are the only things you need aside from the test kit provisions. Since the results are fast, simple, and extremely easy to read, it’s rather ideal to test more than one horse at a time with your vet.

Available exclusively through veterinary professionals, the new SUCCEED®  FBT™ kit is more effective than ever and is sure to provide a clearer look into the health of your horse’s digestive tract. Click here to read about our extensive research.
