NutriScan AHVMA Peer Reviewed: Food Sensitivity and Intolerance Testing

https://gallery.mailchimp.com/65fe70..._Volume_49.pdf

Conclusion
By looking at secretory immune responses to specific food
antigens, detected as salivary antibodies to IgA and IgM in
humans and with the current saliva-based testing in dogs,
a direct correlation between results and clinical allergenic
reactivity to foods can be demonstrated (1–3, 14, 35)

Info in case anyone is interested in this testing:

Nutriscan is the only clinically predictable diagnostic test for dogs, cats and horses to identify the commonly seen food intolerance's and sensitivities in saliva. It is not a test for the rarely seen true allergies to foods. This test measures both IgA (secretory immunity) and IgM (primary immune response) antibodies to 24 selected foods in the saliva of dogs and cats, and 22 selected foods in the saliva of horses. High antibody levels indicate that the animal has a food sensitivity and intolerance to that food or foods. 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.

Very interesting findings and not an outrageous price point either. Thanks for posting this.

Bonus! Site also states that the test is considered diagnostic and therefore may be covered by pet insurance. Certainly worth checking out with insurance and their criteria for approval. But I agree with Aly, the price is reasonable especially for such valuable info.

So glad you mentioned that!

From HemoPet site:
Insurance? Depending on your policy, most pet insurance companies cover not only routine checkups, but also emergency care, prescriptions, treatment and diagnostic testing such as NutriScan. Please check with your insurance provider or seek out health insurance for your companion pet.
