Is your pet constantly scratching, biting its paws or rubbing its face? Does it suffer from more severe skin, breathing, or digestive issues? In order to alleviate his/her discomfort, it is first necessary to understand if the symptoms are due to food or environmental intolerances. 5 Strands® Affordable Pet Testing provides a non-invasive HAIR analysis test on over 300 items to help you zero in on the key sensitivities. You can use our testing results as a screening tool to make the necessary dietary and environmental lifestyle changes necessary to address your pet’s issues.
5 Strands® Affordable Pet Testing scans your pet’s hair sample (10-15 strands) using bio resonance technology and provides an extensive, easy-to-understand report. You can expect to receive your pet’s test results within 5 – 7 days after the hair sample arrives at the processing center.
As a reminder, 5 Strands® Affordable Pet Testing only tests for non-IgE mediated reactions or “intolerances.” This type of reaction may have a delayed onset with symptoms appearing several hours or days after ingestion or exposure and lasting a longer period of time.
IgE (Immunoglobulin E) allergies, which are caused by the body’s immune system, are NOT measured by 5 Strands® Affordable Pet Testing. These reactions occur within minutes of ingestion or exposure and are diagnosed through a blood test or skin prick test by veterinarians.
