SNAP Foal IgG Test
Test and treat foals in a single visit
SNAP Foal IgG test gives fast, accurate results in just minutes—enabling you to detect low levels of IgG and begin life-saving treatment immediately.
Quick and Accurate Detection of Neonate IgG Levels is Critical.
- Low levels of IgG can lead to bacterial infections, arthritis, pneumonia and enteritis.
- Up to 25% of foals may have low levels of IgG.1
- Foals have only 24 hours after birth to absorb immunoglobulins from the colostrum.
- Delayed test results necessitate costly intravenous delivery of immunoglobulins.
- If left untreated, defenseless foals may die.
