Itching, biting, or skin, breathing or digestive issues can all be symptoms of a food or environmental intolerance. This test helps pet owners understand the symptoms their animal may experience due to food or environmental intolerances and sensitivities and make necessary changes to address the animal's issues.
Tests only for non-IgE medicated reactions or intolerances. Non-IgE reactions may have a delayed onset with symptoms appearing several hours or days after ingestion or exposure.
