Heavy Metal Testing

Heavy Metal Testing

There is growing evidence that some heavy metals, including arsenic, copper, lead, mercury, zinc, and aerosolized aluminum may have an effect on your pet’s health. Many diseases have their roots in low-grade heavy metal toxicity, according to several recent studies.

Cats are especially sensitive animals to arsenic. Clinical signs of oral exposure to arsenic include intense abdominal pain, vomiting, staggering gait, diarrhea, collapse, and death.

A simple test can help us determine your pet’s exposure level to heavy metals.  Ask us for details regarding heavy metal testing and detoxification. For more information on heavy metal testing for your pet, give us a call at (407) 897-8555.
