Hair Analysis

A hair tissue mineral analysis is an accurate and comprehensive lab test that uses atomic absorption methods to identify your dog's mineral and nutritional imbalances. Each hair analysis tests the values of over 30 minerals and elements, 8 toxic heavy metals and 15 mineral ratios. A hair analysis is also an accepted method to determine the level of several toxic heavy metals such as lead, mercury, aluminum and arsenic. Toxic heavy metals are very destructive and routine blood tests cannot detect chronic heavy-metal poisoning.

A hair analysis can also reveal a variety of health conditions including adrenal dysfunction, thyroid and pituitary dysfunction, liver and kidney health, certain digestive issues, blood sugar imbalances, metabolism, anemia and inflammation.
