If you dont do it through Dr, Jean dodds its not the same . she has patented it. Hemopet
I did this test for both my dogs, it was incredibly helpful. Both were chewing at their feet and shedding so much. It made all the difference being able to then know what foods to eliminate in their diet. It also complicated things a bit cause they both had different issues and to find one food that worked for both of them was not easy to do but was worth it in the long run. Dr. Jean is also very responsive with emails when I've written after the test to ask if my dog who has a white fish allergy can have things like green lipped muscle which was an ingredient in one of our treats. I've recommended to friends. The negative with this test is how it's done. You have to get your dog to chew on a rope and then extract the saliva. You need to do this a few times to get enough of the saliva. But it's worth doing as I didn't need to take to the vet and did at home. I will continue to test now ever 3 yrs as allergies can change over time with dogs. Highly recommended.
Our pup has suffered from allergies his whole life. A vet suggested this test. She told us to keep him on his medications, fast him for 8 hours and do the test. The instructions that came with the test were useless. After a 40 minute battle to get saliva I learned there is a red indicator. Two weeks later the company calls and says he has to off his meds. We consult vet and reluctantly do. For the second test he fasted for nearly 13 hours. After 3 weeks got the results today saying the test is inconclusive and for 50% off the next teat price he have to strictly fast him (already done) to teat again. Such a money grubby worthless test. Do not bother. Better off with an elimination diet.
