    I wanted to see the foods Sassy was intolerant to. Very glad I did. She is my baby and I need her feeling better. It has only been 2 days since I got her results back, and it is looking good so far.

    I didn’t think anything environmental was bothering my dog, so I decided to just buy the food test for her. Apparently she is intolerant to bacon?!?! Poor baby 🙁 At least she likes her chicken treats too!

    My friend recommended this test for my shih tzu who is always scratching. She is worlds better after eliminating her level 3 items.

    I’m glad I can purchase the food only test for my dog. I knew it was a food intolerance for our dog and not environmental, so it was nice to be able to only buy th food portion

    I should have noticed this did not provide environmental items. But I went ahead and bought an environmental test for my dog. This test has been helpful for my Yorkie. I changed her food, and she likes it better and seems to feel much better.

    I got this for my Rottweiler. I have changed her food to something that doesn’t contain any level 3 items, and it already seems to be helping.

    I was overwhelmed after I received Wilbur’s results but then I called the processing center and they walked through his results with me 🙂

    Very simple to collect the sample. I picked the E-Kit that way I didn’t have to wait for the kit in the mail. Highly recommend

    I’m learning that a lot of the “allergy free” pet foods are not allergy free for every dog. Every dog is different which I know that, but you don’t really think about dogs the same way as humans. My dog was having issues with a lot of the additives and preservatives in kibble that seemed hard to steer away from. I switched to a home delivery frozen dog food that one of the customer service reps recommended, and it does not have the preservatives my dog is intolerant to. I’m really excited to put more focus on my baby’s health because she is getting older and deserves the best and healthiest life!

    Happy I got this for my Cocker Spaniel Riley. The associate the my local pet food store recommended this to me, because every food I get for her caused stomach issues. It was a really simple collection process for her hair, and they emailed me when the received it. It took 5 days to get there. It was nice they let me know when they got it. From then, it was 4 days until I was emailed her results. I was shocked at the speed. I had done a DNA test for Riley before, and it literally took 4 weeks to get the results back. The 5Strands report was easy to read, and I brought it to the store associate that recommended the test to me. He helped me go through ingredient lists there, and we FINALLY found one that did not contain any level 3 items. I had Riley on the new food for only one week before I saw improvements. She has only been having sold stools and she is not as gassy anymore. I am so thankful for the store associate who recommended this test to me, but I am also thankful for 5Strands who offer this easy, affordable, and comprehensive test. I have recommended this to my friends and family with dogs because it really was a game changer for Riley and I.
