Allergy Testing for Dogs

Post  northernwitch on 5/9/2011, 12:20 pm

I received this as an email and thought I'd share with everyone. Not useful to me since I know my dogs have allergies to gluten, beef and milk. This is from Dr. Jean Dodds:

Nutriscan is now available. Our revolutionary patented, canine food sensitivity and intolerance diagnostic test uses an important new approach to nutrition. Salivary diagnostics can more accurately identify the foods to be avoided than can serum food “allergy” testing.

This salivary diagnostic system tests saliva for emerging food reactant antibodies in healthy dogs, as well as the existing antibodies in dogs with known or suspected food intolerance.

The test kit can be obtained directly from Hemopet or your veterinarian can order the kit for you. It is really a very simple procedure. After following directions for collecting the saliva, and adding it to the special double-sleeved tube that we provide, the tube is sealed and sent to Hemopet for analysis.

Testing protocols are for gluten and other food ingredients. The primary dietary antigens to be tested are: corn, wheat, soy, beef, eggs, and milk. This food sensitivity diagnostic testing will identify pets needing appropriate personalized foods and treats.

Nutiscan saliva screening should be used annually or more often, as warranted.

After you complete our On Line Test Request Form - please CLICK at the bottom form to SUBMIT—as it simplifies everything for everyone.

Best regards,

Jean and Hemopet

If my foster Winston had not just been adopted, I would so do this for him! I think I'll pass it along to his new owner, in case she is interested in doing this test.

Blanche, you find the best stuff!

It's the sole advantage of having (1) been in the dog rescue/training/agility world for 30 years and (2) medically complicated/weird dogs. I end up on everyone's emailing list.

Wow that is very affordable! I remember it being around $300 when I had Dora tested (a blood test of course).
