Unlike omnivorous or carnivorous animals, the presence of blood proteins in the feces of herbivores is not normal. Herbivores normally don’t consume animal proteins in their foods, and they typically have GI tracts with tight barriers, so the chance of blood proteins to be present in fecal matter resulting from the animal’s diet or from a leaky gut is extremely slim given the animal is healthy. Thus, the presence of blood proteins in the fecal matter and/or the GI tract is often indicative of the presence of ulcerative legions.

In human medicine, the use of fecal blood tests (FBTs) has been commonplace for decades when it comes to determining the presence of bleeding ulcers in the GI tract. The best FBTs are praised for being highly specific in terms of detecting select proteins of interest.

In veterinary medicine, a commercially available FBT for horses claims to be able to accurately detect blood proteins in manure. This study aimed to test the sensitivity, specificity, detection thresholds, time to obtain results, etc. of this FBT. Results indicated that the FBT is not only simple to use in the field and quick to obtain results, but also boasts high levels of accuracy in determining the presence of various blood proteins.
