What is an intolerance?

An intolerance is a non-immunological adverse reaction to a food or some environmental or man-made element that can cause uncomfortable or debilitating symptoms. In dogs these symptoms vary from unusual behaviour such as excessive scratching or eating grass, digestive problems such as vomiting and diarrhoea or even sudden mood changes.

Intolerance to a food or non-food item may be temporary, unlike allergies which are permanent, and may disappear when we remove the harmful item from our environment for a period of time. This is not the case with allergies which, being a reaction of the immune system, are a health problem and potentially life-threatening if not treated in time.

Although intolerances may be temporary, it is important to detect them early to prevent them from causing a more serious health problem and affecting your pet’s quality of life.

 How the Dog Intolerance Test works

The sample for this test can be easily collected in the comfort of your own home, and all necessary materials and instructions will be provided in the sample collection kit that will be sent to you.  The kit also includes a small green container into which you can put a sample of anything you think might be the cause of your dog’s symptoms.

Be sure to package and ship the samples according to the instructions included in the kit, and you will receive your results by email within 5 working days of receipt of the samples in the laboratory.

This test is only for dogs 6 months of age and older.


Dog Intolerance Test Results

The test results will be sent to your email address and consist of a comprehensive report showing your dog’s reaction level to each of the 152 food and 48 non-food items analysed in the test. For better understanding, the report classifies the reaction levels by colour, with red indicating a sensitive reaction, yellow for a mild reaction and green indicating that your dog has no reaction to the item.

Accompanying these analyses of food and non-food sensitivities the report also contains an introduction explaining the fundamental difference between an intolerance and an allergy, clarifying that this test is NOT for detecting allergies and finally a summary with recommended actions to avoid the elements to which your dog showed a reaction.
