Welcome to 5 Strands® Affordable Pet Test
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.
