Does Your Dog Display These Symptoms?
If you’re a dog owner, then you have more than just a pet … you have a furry member of the family. Man’s best friend is a blessing indeed, but unlike the rest of the family he can’t tell you verbally if he is suffering, so if you notice lethargy or abnormal behaviour in dogs, these are the most common problems we hear about that have led to dog owners getting their beloved canine tested.
My dog won't stop eating dirt
My dog keeps trembling
My dog has really bad breath
My dog is having trouble walking
Simple and Effective Results
Mineral deficiencies in dogs can start off with a dull coat, dry & flaky skin or bone and joint problems. If left, these can lead to a poor growth and a weakened immune system in your dog.
Something else to consider, especially for breeders, is that mineral deficiencies often lead to fertility issues in dogs. But all of this can be prevented by a simple test AND, once we have the results, we can advise you what to use to bring your dog back to optimal health.
Taking a Hair Sample
Firstly, the hair must be untreated, washed and rinsed thoroughly and completely dried. Next, cut small portions as close to the skin as possible at the back of the neck, above and below the collar but avoiding the skin where any treatments are applied.
Please use high grade stainless steel or plastic scissors to avoid contamination. The required amount of hair needed for testing is half a gram, or approximately one tablespoon of proximal (root), at a length of no more than 6cm. This reflects the most recent metabolic activity. Place this in the sample collection envelope provided and discard any remaining hair.
