'Foal-Proof' provides peace of mind.
Now it is easy to verify pregnancy status from 120 days after breeding right through to the expected time of foaling. We suggest that pregnant mares be re-examined 5 to 7 months after first being diagnosed pregnant, so that pregnancy status can be verified and managed accordingly.
'Foal-Proof' does not suffer the problem of 'false positive' diagnoses seen with other biochemical pregnancy tests where mares that have lost their pregnancy are still diagnosed as pregnant. In the event of
fetal loss, production of pregnancy specific steroids ceases and their metabolites in maternal blood quickly disappear, thereby resulting in a 'not pregnant' diagnosis when tested by 'Foal-Proof'.
Foal-Proof is an easy, rapid and accurate test for diagnosing the pregnancy status of mares from 120 days after breeding through to the expected time of foaling.
Foal-Proof uses lateral flow technology to analyze a small sample of maternal blood for the presence of metabolites of pregnancy specific steroids secreted by the developing fetal-placental unit, and thereby aid the diagnosis of pregnancy status.
