Getting Saliva Sample Tips from Pets

PLEASE NOTE: Pets should not take Apoquel® by Zoetis for at least 2 weeks before performing NutriScan testing, as it can suppress bowel surface immune reactions.

Tests for 24 purified food extracts that recognize 56 food ingredients: Beef (Bison and Buffalo), Chicken (Chicken Fat, Necks and Flavorings), Corn (Cornstarch, Corn Gluten Meal), Duck (Duck Fat), Lamb (Lamb Dairy, Goat, Goat Dairy), Cow Milk (Cow Dairy), Pork (Pork Fat), Soy (Soy Isoflavones), Turkey (Turkey Necks, Turkey Fat), Venison (Deer, Elk, and Treats/Chews), Wheat (Wheat Germ Meal), White-Colored Fish (White-Colored Fish Oils, Herring, Sardines, Tuna), Barley (Barley Water), Hen Eggs (Fertilized Hen Eggs), Lentils (Peas, Pea Fiber, Pea Protein), Millet, Oatmeal, Peanuts (Peanut Oil), Potatoes, Quinoa, Rabbit, Rice, Salmon (Salmon Oil), and Sweet Potatoes (Yams).

As these foods are measured in duplicate with 2 different antibodies (IgA and IgM), NutriScan detects reactivities to 112 foods.

If prior reactive foods have been removed from the pet diet, retesting should be negative or weakly reactive. BUT, these reactive foods should not be fed again, as immune memory persists and will likely be recalled.
