Is your cat experiencing adverse symptoms like skin rashes or digestive issues like diarrhea and vomiting? Your cat might be suffering from intolerance or sensitivity to a particular food or environmental trigger.

Intolerance is a non-immunologic adverse reaction to food or other substances. To determine if your cat is intolerant to a certain item, the Cat Intolerance Test analyses 143 food and 49 non-food items including milk, salmon, pollen, and others.

Why Test Your Cat for Intolerances

Similar to people, cats may develop intolerances to certain substances or allergens found in our homes and other common environments.

Some reactions are easier to detect because they manifest as skin rashes or obvious digestive problems. However, some may be more challenging to detect. In the absence of visible symptoms, your cat may experience mood changes or be miserable in general.

Undetected intolerances or sensitivities may negatively affect your pet’s quality of life. These may also lead to serious health problems.

How the Test Works

The Cat Intolerance Test is a laboratory-based genetic test that detects your pet’s sensitivity to common substances that may be present in your home.

To carry out this test, you will only need to provide your cat’s hair samples. The kit, which will be sent to your address after you order the test, contains instructions and the sample container – all you need to collect your pet’s samples.

Please keep the following guidelines in mind to successfully collect your pet’s sample:

  • The fur samples should include the root. If this is not possible, try to cut the hair as close to the root as possible.
  • If the hair is longer than 1 inch, you only need to provide 5-6 fur strands.
  • The samples can be taken from any fur from the body of your cat.

After taking the sample, place it in the bag provided, and write your pet’s name on the label.

You may also include samples of anything you think your pet is sensitive to. These can include samples of your cat’s food, treats, and shampoo as well as other substances like dust or pollen. Please place these samples inside the small green collection tube provided in the kit.

Do NOT place the fur sample in any metallic packaging or metal foil. Place the sample in a secure envelope or postage wallet before sending it back to the laboratory.

What is Included in the Report

After you send your samples back to our laboratory, you can expect to receive the results via email in 3 to 5 business days.

The report contains a comprehensive explanation of the intolerances your cat might have. It also includes a guide to help you eliminate these triggers from your pet’s diet and environment.

NOTE: Your test results only display items with a score of 85% and higher. This is the point where your cat begins to exhibit adverse symptoms and reactions. If the item falls below this threshold, it will not be included in the report.

Some of these intolerances may simply require a change in diet, but some may necessitate medical treatment. Please discuss the results with your veterinarian to determine the best treatment for your pet.

Limitations of the Cat Intolerance Test

Because the Cat Intolerance Test is suitable for cats who are on full adult meals, it is ideal to wait until your pet is at least 6 months old.

Also, since this test does not require blood samples, most drugs would not have an effect on its results. However, if you are concerned about a particular medication or another test, please let us know.
