NutriScan - Pet Sensitivity & Intolerance Test

Do you often hear or say "allergies"? More than likely, you are referring to a food intolerance or sensitivity, which is actually quite common. An actual food allergy is rare. In fact, food intolerance is the third most common sensitivity condition in dogs and cats, and often was remedied with a change in diet. For years, though, the difficulty lay in figuring out what foods were problematic – until now.

Developed by world renowned veterinarian, Dr. Jean Dodds, NutriScan tests for the twenty-four most commonly ingested foods by dogs and cats to provide you with specific results as to your companion animal's food intolerances or sensitivities. Since it is a salivary test, you have the convenience to complete the test at home or at your veterinarian’s office. Best of all, you and your veterinarian will have the results in approximately two weeks to discuss the best approach to address your pet's diet. 

NutriScan tests for:

Beef Corn Wheat
Soy Cow's Milk Lamb
Venison/Deer Chicken Turkey
White Fish Pork Duck
Chicken Eggs Barley Millet
Oatmeal Salmon Rabbit
Rice Quinoa Potato
Lentil Sweet Potato Peanut/Peanut Butter


Please remember, NutriScan is novel and patented and is not testing for food allergies, but rather tests for food sensitivities and intolerance. These are different body immune responses. Food allergy is a more immediate reaction mediated by production of IgE and IgG antibodies. Food sensitivity and intolerance, by contrast, measures a more delayed body response to offending foods by measuring production of IgA and IgM antibodies primarily in mucosal secretions from the bowel.

Dr. Dodds recommends that dogs and cats are tested annually as – similar to humans – their food tolerances and intolerances change over time.
