How to Take a Pet Hair Sample

Animals can benefit from a Hair Analysis and Nutritional Balancing Program just as much as humans.  Here is the information you need for taking a hair sample from your pet.

Pet Hair Analysis Sample Basics:

  • Only cut the sample from the abdomen or chest area
  • Wipe the fur clean with a cotton swab of alcohol if dirty
  • Let the sampling area dry before cutting the hair
  • Cut the sample as close as possible to the skin.  With long hair, discard all but the inch of hair closest to the skin
  • Place the hair sample in a paper envelope (not plastic or aluminum foil) and do not tape or staple together
