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

Dog Intolerance Test uses a sample of your dog’s fur and bio-resonance technology to identify imbalances in your pet’s body that may be causing the symptoms by analysing a wide range of food and non-food items.

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 143 food and 49 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.
