Navigating the minefield of sensitivities in our dogs can be difficult. And we’ve been there ourselves, so we get that it isn’t easy to know where to start.  Most of us know how it feels. Something isn’t right with our furballs, so the next step is an expensive trip to the vet that ends up with pricey lotions, potions, pills, “hypoallergenic” dog food, or ineffective elimination diets.  But we’re often given these recommendations without understanding what’s causing the issue in the first place. Even if by some miracle they do clear up our dog’s skin, as soon as the course of treatment is over, it flares back up, and guess where we end up again? So you’re left scratching your head asking, “well, what now?”  No matter where you are in your dog’s reaction journey, it’s important to understand you’re not alone. It can be a seriously confusing time, often filled with more questions than answers. A fur test could be just what you need. It’ll give you clarity on the potential triggers of your pup’s reactions. Which is great news! It means you can finally start doing something about them.  First of all, what is a reaction? If you’ve ever noticed your pooch suffering from…
  • Korma-like poos
  • Eye-watering farts
  • Excessive scratching or licking
  • Head shaking
  • Weight changes
  • Heat spots
  • Hives
  • Patches of missing fur
  • Aggressively red skin
  • Feet chewing
  • Sneezing
  • Vomiting
  • Ear infections
  • Lethargy
…then it’s probably a good idea to order a test and get to the bottom of the issue. That’s where we come in.  Swagwags’ fur tests are 100% bespoke to us. We designed them with our lab, so you won’t find the same test anywhere else on the market. Created by isolating the most common triggers found across dog diets and lifestyles, the test gives you a real insight into what’s causing their issues.  Here’s how it works in four simple steps:
  1. Order your test and wait for it to arrive
  2. Take about 5 strands of hair from your pooch
  3. Send the test back to us
  4. Receive your results in around 72 hours, complete with a full consultation and in-depth understanding of your pups’ triggers
It’s easy, pain-free, and you’ll help your dog feel better in no time. When you know exactly what you’re fighting against, you can make a few slight changes and watch as their symptoms fade away. And, unlike other testing companies, we don’t just deliver your results and leave you to figure it out on your own. We’ve put together an in-depth guide on every type of trigger we test for. It explains how they might show up in your pup’s life and how you can easily transition away from them. You’ll receive a personalised copy with your results, so you have your own unique step-by-step guide to your dog’s reactions. You’ll also get a list of the Swagwags recipes your pup can have based on their triggers. Which means you don’t have to go through the tedious process of scanning every food or treat label individually.  We’ll be with you every step of the way. And if you prefer a raw diet, that’s okay too. Getting your pup healthy again is the top priority. So what are you waiting for? Order your Swagwags test today!
