Mycotoxin Urine Test For Pets
When pets have been exposed to mold and mycotoxins, they exhibit many of the same symptoms as humans. The most common are skin issues leading to excessive scratching, itching, or chewing, respiratory difficulties such as coughing, wheezing, and runny nose, kidney issues, and loss of appetite. Because pets are smaller and often closer to the source of the mold than humans, they are more susceptible to mold-related illnesses and more likely to exhibit symptoms first in the household. Environmental Health Consultants also offers a mycotoxin urine test for pets that can be used at home to test your dog or cat for mold and mycotoxin exposure.
At Home Environmental Test Kit
Environmental Health Consultants also offers a test kit for clients to use at home to determine if mold is present in their environment and if a full indoor air quality assessment by one of our licensed mold assessors is recommended.
