From the manufacturer;
The Pet Metals & Minerals Test will indicate your pet’s ability to process and eliminate each of the 40 items tested. These results will empower you to know what might be creating imbalances within your pet's life. If and when your pet would come in contact with any of the metals/minerals that register on their results, their bodies may not be able to process and eliminate those items the way their body was intended to. Imbalances can manifest as vomiting, diarrhea, seizures, bloody stools, lethargy, and loss of appetite
Ingestion of excessive mineral doses by animals can occur in several ways. Heavy metals have the largest availability in soil and aquatic ecosystems and a smaller proportion in the atmosphere. Other possible sources of exposure can come from the following: mistakes in balancing mineral supplements and/or commercial pet food, intake of plants that have high mineral concentration, fertilizers, herbicides, insecticides and fungicides used on pasture or tillage where plants and/or grains will be used for animal feed, decomposition of urban and industrial wastes, leaks and accidental spills of pollutants, licking of painted surfaces containing metallic pigments and pharmaceutical medicines.
It is very difficult to control your pet’s exposure to these items. However, if your pet is exhibiting unexplained symptoms, these test results will be one more tool that may help give you another piece to the puzzle. It will help you determine whether or not you choose to vaccinate your pet or continue with certain medications or supplements. You might decide that you wish to change the protein source of your pet’s food from a “seafood” to something else. Sometimes it may even indicate that you stop feeding your pet commercial dry food and switch to home grown or organic whole foods that will assist your pet’s body to naturally detoxify. Please remember that you should always consult with your veterinarian in regards to any detoxification protocols if needed.
