How Fur Analysis for Cats Works

Hair analysis on a cat can help Dr. Frck and you determine what is happening with the thyroid, adrenal, and pituitary glands. It will give an indication of how that animal deals with carbohydrates, sugars, available protein, enzymes, and their energy level. Changes in key minerals, mineral ratios, and the presence of toxic metals can affect personality and behavior in ways we find unhealthy and undesirable, but the animal cannot help it. Understanding the animal’s oxidation rate, we know how quickly they are changing food to energy. With all that valuable information a very customized nutritional assessment, supplements, and dietary recommendations can be made.

Fur Analysis is a Mineral Blueprint

Providing a mineral blueprint of one’s biochemistry a fur tissue mineral analysis can provide pertinent information about your animal’s metabolic rate, energy levels, sugar and carbohydrate tolerance, stage of stress, immune system and glandular activity.  A hair tissue mineral analysis is considered a standard test, used around the world for the biological monitoring of trace elements and toxic metals in humans and animals species. Fur, like all other body tissues, contains minerals that are deposited as the fur grows.  A sample of fur cut close to the skin provides information about the mineral activity in the fur that took place over the past three to four months.

Dr. Frick and her research was published by the Journal of the American Holistic Veterinary Medical Association in the Fall 2017 issue.  She is very excited about this recognition.  Read the publication here.  Then contact her to see how she can help you help animals by utilizing this test modality.
