Dear Friends,

Many dogs have food-triggered ailments, primarily manifesting as itchy skin, rashes, chronic ear problems, diarrhea, gas or inflammatory bowel problems. Sometimes these intolerances are referred to as allergies, but true food allergies are quite rare. They are more likely to be food sensitivities.

Knowing exactly which foods is the tricky part. Elimination diets can be time consuming and hit or miss. When Deb’s dog Pete was suffering from itchy red paws, she cut out all poultry and beef (the presumed culprits) and spent many hundreds of dollars on novel proteins such as venison and rabbit. A year later she tried the Nutriscan mail-in saliva test and discovered to her surprise that his symptoms were not from chicken, duck or beef, but were triggered by turkey, salmon, oatmeal, potatoes and barley. Now she can save money and keep Pete itch-free without guessing!

Nutriscan tests for 24 different foods, and is more accurate than a blood test. We’re so delighted with how well it works that we are making the test available at an $18 savings from what it costs directly from the company. To pick up a test kit, drop by any one of our 12 local stores, and ask a friendly pet care specialist!
