Cost includes nutritional analysis by Fresh Tracks Pet Shoppe owners to help select the correct food for your pet.
This is the original hair and saliva testing method for identifying imbalances and finding solutions to help your pet. The Pet Wellness Life Stress Scan is a non-invasive method for finding food and environmental sensitivities and triggers that may be causing allergy-type reactions in your pet.
Common allergies include:
In rare cases, your pet might actually be allergic to one of these, but most often they are actually intolerance's or sensitivities, rather than true allergies.
The most common “allergy” type symptoms include incessant itching and scratching, chronic ear infections, watery eyes, licking or chewing the paws, scooting their behinds on the ground, and a yeasty or “corn chip” odor. If your pet exhibits any of these behaviors, the Alternative Sensitivity Assessment may be able to help you get to the root of the problem.
This is an alternative testing method and should not be compared to blood testing or serum testing for allergies. We do not use this assessment to measure IgE and IgG antibodies. We include suggestions for holistic and herbal remedies that may help eliminate these underlying stressors and strengthen the immune system. This assessment helps eliminate all the guessing so you can choose the most appropriate food and supplements for your pets.

Some Frequently Asked Questions about the Alternative Sensitivity Assessment:
1. Q: How long does it take to receive my results?
A: Glacier Peak Holistics will complete your pet's assessment within 10-14 business days from the time we receive your samples. We DO send a confirmation via email when we receive your samples. That email will come from our support desk "Support GPH" so look for it in your spam folder too.
2. Q: How will I receive my test results?
A: GPH will send all results by email directly to the email address provided on the order form after the test has been completed. INCLUDE "FRESH TRACKS PET SHOPPE" ON THE ORDER FORM TO HAVE RESULTS SENT TO US. We will keep them on file, and for an additional fee we will provide customized food and supplement recommendations based on your pets' results.
3. Q: My dog has short hair or doesn't shed, can I trim/cut some hair for the hair sample?
A: Yes, trimming the dogs hair for the hair sample is okay. Please make sure that there is enough hair to cover the circle on the order form and place hair in the provided zip bag.
4. Q: How accurate is this Alternative Sensitivity Assessment?
A: Because these assessments are done using the energetic imprint of your pet, the results can vary. There isn't a way that we can put a number value to this question, we only know that we receive daily comments and testimonials from the nearly eight thousand customers of how we've helped their pet.
5. Q: What's the best way to get the saliva samples?
A: We provide you with three organic cotton swabs in the test kit. The best way to get the saliva sample is to hold all three of the swabs on one end and swab the inside of the mouth along the gum line and cheek area with the opposite end. This will get all three swabs done at once - easier for you and your pet. It is also helpful to wait until just before a meal (dog/cat begins to salivate in anticipation) or just after they get a drink.
6. Q: Now that I have my results, what do I do with them?
A: Your assessment results will be your pet's road map to achieving optimum health balance. You will see what foods your pet is currently sensitive to and steer clear of ingredients that trigger itching, irritation, and other unwanted ailments. Your results will also recommend beneficial remedies based on your pet's profile, which are critical to addressing the probable concerns such as a weak immune system or the presence of fungus and bacteria. Identifying food sensitivities is an important first step, but addressing your pet's probable concerns is where you will see the real, lasting transformation.
