Hyperproteinaemia can occur in dehydration, extreme hyperfibrinogenaemia and the hypergammaglobulinaemia of chronic infection. Measurement of total protein is therefore too non-specific to be useful in the evaluation of the elite equine athlete. Hypoproteinaemia, when identified, similarly provides better information when broken down into its sub-components. Hypoproteinaemia is always disturbing.
