Why Hair Mineral Analysis For Pets?

Hair tissue mineral analysis can be as beneficial for pet animals as they are for human beings.   It is a simple way to determine the nutrient and toxic metals in your pet’s body. Only a small sample of fur is required.

The correct mineral balance is important for animal health. Physical and emotional stresses can deplete your pet’s body of vital nutrients. Environmental toxicity may also result in the accumulation of toxins that disrupt healthy body chemistry. Signs of mineral imbalances in your pet include tooth decay, poor growth, skin problems, parasite infestation and lethargy.

There are many advantages of hair testing over blood testing:

  • Non-invasive. Collection is non-invasive and painless.
  • Simple. Easy to sample at home.
  • Early indicator of health concerns. Unlike blood, hair does not regulate its mineral contents. Mineral imbalances show up earlier and more dramatically in the hair.
  • Long term reading. Blood provides an instantaneous snapshot of its contents, whereas hair analysis captures the average metabolic profile over a few months.

What Does A Hair Mineral Analysis Test For?

The hair test measures the levels of 10 nutrient minerals, 5 heavy metals and also calculates 6 mineral ratios of the hair. The amounts of minerals deposited in the hair reveal several things about your pets’s health:

  • Diet performance
  • Optimal diet and supplementation
  • Stress patterns
  • Vitality level
  • Heavy metal toxicities
  • Mineral toxicities
  • Mineral deficiencies
  • Disease tendencies

15 Elements tested

Nutritional Elements: Calcium, Magnesium, Sodium, Potassium, Iron, Copper, Manganese, Zinc, Chromium, Phosphorus

Toxic Elements: Arsenic, Mercury, Cadmium, Lead, Aluminum

Mineral Ratios: Calcium/Magnesium, Calcium/Potassium, Sodium/Magnesium, Sodium/Potassium, Zinc/Copper, Calcium/Phosphorous

What do I do with the results?

Included with the hair test report is a tailored nutritional program for your pet, consisting of supplements, diet and lifestyle recommendations.

All animals today need not only excellent feed, but they all need certain nutritional supplements.  This is because nutrients contained in even the best pet food, the best hay or pastureland, is just not sufficient for today’s animals.  A nutritional balancing program is the best way to determine the supplements and diet needed by your pet.

In our experience, nutritional balancing would save pet owners substantial expenditure in unnecessary disability and cost.  It would also greatly extend the lifespan of animals and contribute greatly to their wellbeing.

We want our pets to live happy healthy lives!

Most pets have mineral deficiencies, excesses, or heavy metals in their systems. Nutritional balancing is an easy, and cost-effective way to take care of your pet’s health before a major illness occurs or worse. You can greatly improve your pet’s well being with a pet nutritional balancing program.
