Does your dog or cat have itchy skin, irritable bowel syndrome, diarrhea, gas or inflammatory bowel disease? Do you suspect your pet has an allergy? More than likely your dog or cat has a food sensitivity or intolerance. 

Food sensitivities and intolerances are different body immune responses than a true food allergy, which is a more immediate reaction mediated by production of IgE and IgG antibodies. Food sensitivity and intolerance, by contrast, is a more delayed body response to offending foods by measuring production of IgA and IgM antibodies primarily in mucosal secretions from the bowel. 

In fact, food intolerance or sensitivity is actually quite common whereas food allergy is rare. Food intolerance is the third most common sensitivity condition in dogs and cats, and often can be easily 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 pet'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 can have the results in approximately two weeks to help you put your companion animal on the right diet.

Foods Tested
Beef Chicken Eggs
Corn Barley
Wheat Millet
Soy Oatmeal
Cow's Milk Salmon
Lamb Rabbit
Venison (Deer) Rice
Chicken Quinoa
Turkey Potato
Sweet Potato Peanut/Peanut Butter
Pork White Colored Ocean Fish (includes sardines, menhaden, pollack, herring)
Duck Lentil (includes peas)

Dr. Dodds recommends that companion animals are tested annually as – similar to humans – their food sensitivities and intolerances change over time.
