5Strands Pet Food & Environmental Intolerance Test Kit

Launching the business in 2017, the talented, USA based (Georgia) 5Strands team quickly created a wave of awareness around at-home pet care. Using only hair, 5Strands tests pets for intolerances to 250+ common pet food ingredients and 100+ common environmental items. After the test, an elimination guideline is shared highlighting intolerance triggers. By following the elimination guideline, a long list of uncomfortable intolerance symptoms can quickly be eradicated from suffering pets' lives. Skin, digestive, weight, gas, breathing, joint pain issues and many more. The 5Strands team and approach is continually highlighted by various media outlets, as pet owners just can't believe how simple dietary and/or environmental changes to their pets' lives can have such a huge impact on their health.

While symptoms of allergies and intolerances can be the same or similar, only a small percentage of pet symptoms are caused by true allergies. The majority of reactions are instead due to intolerances, and via the 5Strands test kit pet owners can clearly identify food and environmental triggers. 



The ease of submitting a hair sample for analysis and the quick return of comprehensive results are a true innovation. It's also a great way to establish a deeper connection with retail customers. Ask them to share the test results with you. Together, you can then pick out ideal products for their pets (food etc.) keeping their intolerances in mind. Knowledge is key to taking the best possible care of a pet, and the 5Strands team is truly committed to this belief. It's a team and a belief Only An Ocean is thrilled to support.

"I am so grateful that I found 5Strands. It tests for such a variety of triggers without the pain and discomfort of traditional testing. The information given on the results sheet is also easy to understand and interpret. I was able to transition Atlas onto a raw diet that has visually and physically made him so much healthier and happier - plus eliminating his seizures literally saved his life!"


"5Strands has changed our lives completely. I felt so bad that Pigpen was always suffering with bumps and fur loss. He's much happier now and we haven't had to go to the vet for a reaction in months! For the price of one vet visit (purchasing the test) we saved many future vet visits. This test is 100% worth it!"
