Nutriscan is the only clinically predictable diagnostic test for dogs, cats and horses to identify the commonly seen food intolerances and sensitivities in saliva. The Nutriscan test is patent protected in the United States and internationally with scientific backing.
Food intolerance or sensitivity is actually quite common whereas food allergy is rare. In fact, food intolerance is the third most common sensitivity condition in dogs and often can be easily remedied with a change in diet which is why Dr. Jean Dodds DVM developed the Nutriscan test. For years, though, the difficulty lay in figuring out what foods were problematic — until now.
This test measures antibodies to certain foods in dog saliva. High antibody levels indicate that the dog has a food sensitivity and intolerance to that food or foods. It is not a DNA test or a cheek/gum swab test. In fact, food intolerance is the third most common sensitivity condition in dogs and often can be easily remedied with a change in diet.
NutriScan tests for the twenty-four most commonly ingested foods to provide you with specific results. Since it is a salivary test, you have the convenience to complete the test at home, at your local pet store or at your veterinarian's office. Best of all, you can have the results in approximately 3 to 10 days to help you put your dog on the right diet.
