Did you know that animals can be affected by mycotoxins just as strongly as humans? Our veterinarian panel tests for the presence of the 16 most toxigenic mycotoxins including 9 macrocyclic trichothecenes that have been proven to be caused by Stachybotrys, otherwise known as “Black Mold.”
Shipment and Results
RealTime Laboratories knows that your pets are family. Not being able to communicate with them when they are ill makes it even more difficult to diagnose them. If you have discovered mold in your house and have been diagnosed with mycotoxin poisoning, there is a fair chance your pet could be suffering from it too. Because they are lower to the ground and eating on the floor, they could start showing symptoms earlier than their humans.
RTL can accept and test a sample from any animal that is able to produce 3mL of urine. If you cannot collect urine from your animal by yourself at home, your veterinarian should be able to extract it for you.
