Gemoscan Canada Inc., a marketer of food sensitivity and dietary management solutions, announced that it has completed research, development and beta testing of a new Pet Food Intolerance Test.
The company says that some research has shown that up to 10 percent of dogs and cats may suffer from petfood intolerances or allergies.
Gemoscan's PFIT management program is based on the company's blood testing technology, portions of which are used to manage food intolerances in humans through its HEMOCODE and MenuWise retail programs. The PFIT test assess for 80 foods and additives. The test was developed in consultation with veterinary doctors, while the ingredients being analyzed were determined after a review of approximately 100 different commercially available dry and canned foods.
Pet owners want a lot from their pet food brands. They want primary proteins that suit what they believe is best for their animal. They want grains or they don't. They want something customized, but it has to be easy to understand.
Constraints and crises, like those experienced in 2020, help drive innovation and sustainability offers context.
