Dog Intolerance Test
Testing: 1 Dog Sample
Timeframe: 5 working days after we receive your samples at the laboratories
Your dog may be intolerant to different foods such as gluten, salmon or almonds and environmental elements such as pollen, leather, perfume, among others. This intolerance may manifest itself through symptoms such as digestive problems, skin irritations, hair loss, constant licking and eating grass. When it comes to intolerances these adverse reactions do not pose a threat to your pet’s life but it is important to detect them in time to prevent them from becoming a health problem.
It is important identify which elements of everyday life are causing discomfort to your furry companion and with the help of your veterinarian act by avoiding the harmful elements to alleviate your dog’s symptoms.
Why should you order the Dog Intolerance Test?
Like humans, dogs can also be sensitive to certain foods or environmental elements that cause adverse reactions that are reflected in symptoms affecting their health and well-being. Dog Intolerance Test will help you to identify your dog’s reaction to a list of foods and non food items covering not only common foods and supplements but also daily household products which may result in being harmful to your pet.
Additionally, the results report will furnish you with recommended guidelines for systematically removing elements that trigger adverse reactions in your dog. It will also assess the gradual reintroduction of these elements into your canine companion’s life over a specified period.
It is also important to note that this test is NOT for identifying allergies, as the effects of intolerances disappear after avoiding the offending elements for a period of time, whereas with allergies the symptoms will remain for the lifetime of your pet because they are adverse reactions of the immune system and can cause serious and life-threatening damage to your furry friend.
Important Note: It is suggested that the dog being tested is over 6 months of age since puppies tend to experience changes in their sensitivities as they age.
