  • Both plants and animals require certain minerals to grow and thrive. These essential minerals are acquired through food and water. However, some minerals are poisonous, even in minute amounts. Heavy metals, can cause acute or chronic toxicity in animals. Common sources of heavy metals include plant-derived feed stuffs, polluted soils, industrial wastes, fish meals, mineral supplements or premixes, feed therapeutics, and surface or well waters.
  • New agricultural practices such as the use of municipal and livestock wastes on croplands and increased feeding of recycled or up-cycled plant and animal products may result in greater exposure of animals to toxic levels of heavy metals.While there are no laws governing heavy metal concentration in pet foods, there have been many research studies showing the pet’s food can contribute to an over-exposure of these metals and minerals.
  • Every day we experience environmental pollution by heavy metals. Not only are you at risk from exposure to these pollutants, but so are your dogs and cats. Symptoms of heavy metal toxicity mimic those of gastrointestinal disorders, so it’s possible a pet could be misdiagnosed. It helps if you know your animal was exposed to these substances.Eating from a ceramic glazed bowl, chewing golf balls, eating lead based paint chips from the wall are just a few examples of possible lead exposures.

    My poor baby was being exposed to too much arsenic because I put rice in his homemade food. I never knew that arsenic was very prevalent in rice until I talked to a customer service rep about it.

    I bought this test for Petey, my Chihuahua, because I wanted to make sure he did not have an over-exposure to any heavy metals or minerals. Price was super affordable.

    We got this for our Cocker Spaniel mix and it was super informative. I spoke with Austin on the phone and he broke everything down for me.

    Customer service person Elaine I think helped me understand this much better. I wanted to make sure my Pitbull was not having over exposures to harmful metals and minerals.

    Wasn’t too sure what my next step was after getting the results. It was very interesting to know what toxins were in my cat.

    Kind of interesting to see, but I should have gotten the food test too.

    I took the metals test for myself and my corgi. I got the results back for myself, but I am still waiting on my corgi’s results.
