GI Map Testing

This panel measures viral causes of gastroenteritis, unavailable by other common stool tests. It measures parasites such as Cryptosporidium, Giardia,and Entomoeba histolytica. It analyzes Helicobacter pylori and its virulence factors. It can detect opportunistic pathogens such as Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, and Proteus mirabilis, associated with autoimmune molecular mimicry and much more.

Skin disease is very common in dogs because the skin is the target organ for allergies. While the symptoms are in the skin, the underlying problems often are not. Functional Medicine helps to eliminate or relieve the causes of your pets skin and allergy issues.
