What is EHAA?
Elemental Hair Analysis for Animals
Elemental Hair Analysis for Animals EHAA is an innovative project implemented thanks to close cooperation between accredited LifelineDiag diagnostic laboratory in Cieszyn, operating on the Polish market since 2012 and the Department of Animal Nutrition, Faculty of Animal Breeding and Animal Biology at the University of Agriculture in Cracow.
EHAA test result has been developed based on the results of a number of scientific studies conducted using the inductively coupled plasma optical emission spectometry with the Optima 8000 ICP-OES spectrometer from PerkinElmer, analyzed and developed by a panel of experts in the field of diet and animal biology.
The EHAA is a non-invasive diagnostic test that gives the most reliable results of the levels and proportions of nutrients and toxins that occur in your dog’s coat.
By performing an EHAA test you will be able to control and regulate the biochemical balance and mineral nutrition of the body – the factors essential for the health and shape of your best friend.
What the result of EHAA can tell you?
The EHAA test determines the levels of 24 elements
including 14 essential nutritional macro- and micronutrients and 10 toxic elements that can damage the dog’s body.
As a result of the EHAA we also learn about the mutual proportions of elements, extremely important for maintaining the biochemical balance of the organism.
Each result is consulted in writting by our expert who, on the basis of the parameters contained therein, give valuable tips and dietary advice to the owner, directed individually to his dog.
Why EHAA, not urine or blood test?
Hair – unlike blood or urine – collects information about the changes taking place in the mineral economy of the whole organism, thus giving a more real and accurate picture of nutritional excesses, deficiencies and toxic loads than the body fluids.
Blood test dosn’t show the state of mineral balance in such a precise way, because its composition is regulated at the cost of other tissues and organs (such as the hair) by „displacing” or collecting missing nutrients from them. This is why elemental hair analysis accurately reflects the actual state of nutrition in the animal’s body.
When to do an EHAA test?
Elemental Hair Analysis is a simple and non-invasive test that is worth doing if:
You are a breeder of purebred dogs or owner of show dogs, you care about their peak form and beautiful appearance,
You want to check if the diet you offer to your dog provides him with all the necessary minerals,
Your friend has health problems and needs additional diagnostics,
You have a dog with a diagnosed disease that requires proper nutrition,
Your pet is suffering from obesity, digestive problems, skin problems, dental disease, itching or hair loss,
Your dog is your friend and you want to visibly increase its quality of life with correct diet.
