Frequently asked questions
What is involved in an Animal Iridology Assessment?
Iridology is an assessment of constitution of your animal; in other words it is the assessment of the “inherited” traits. With every assessment we use the latest iridology technology to analyze the health status of the animal through its iris structures.
Does Animal Iridology replace my Vet?
No, Animal Iridology does not replace your Veterinarian. Iridology is by no means a diagnostic tool but rather an assessment of constitution. Unlike conventional modalities, we don't name pathological diseases but instead we assess tissue strengths and weaknesses according to the iris map. In many cases it is beneficial for us to work in conjunction with the vet to provide the best possible care for your animal as we require blood works and miscellaneous studies to be combined with our assessment.
How long does an Animal iridology Assessment take?
The procedure of photographing the eye is very quick, provided somebody offers support holding the head of the animal still away from direct sunlight. The report making takes between two to three working days depending on our schedule.
How often should my animal have an Iris Assessment?
The younger the animal the better it is for us to establish a baseline iris topography and compare the changes developing as the years go by. However, Iridology assessments are recommended at least once a year to keep the animal in check.
Does the eye change after an assessment?
Amongst Iridologists there are several different schools of thought regarding the observation of changes in the iris topography. Technology has allowed us to take it a step further and discuss these findings with objective and qualitative evidence.
Does animal iridology diagnose disease?
Iridology is an assessment of constitution and by no means is it as diagnostic tool. Iridology assesses constitutional tissue strengths and weaknesses without naming pathological disease. However, iridology can assess the extent of tissue imbalance and its relationship with other organs in the body.
How can Equine Iridology help my animal?
Whether you are in the thoroughbred industry, involved in stud duties, harness racing, eventing, show jumping, dressage, breeding or simply have an animal you want to look after holistically, Equine Iridology and Animal Services Through the Eye can help identifying the following areas:
•Inheritance from the Sire and the Dam
•Inflammation acidity and alkalinity status
•Toxicity levels: ie heavy metals.
•Impactions in intestinal flexures
•Distribution of nutrients around the body
•Breeding– “matching” the strongest constitutional mare with the strongest constitutional stallion.
•Performance at training and racing..
•Decreased stamina (ie: long recovery time and excessive tiredness).
•Healing ability, recurrent ulcers, pathogenic infection and allergies.
•Spookiness at competition and training time.
•All areas where the animal may need some extra care and nourishment.
Is the left eye different from the right eye?
Each eye gives us different information that’s why it is important to perform an Iridology assessment of both eyes.
What if the Iridology findings do not coincide with my vet pathology tests?
Because Iridology looks at the constitutional predispositions of the animal, if the congenital signs haven’t yet triggered a physiological response after becoming activated, they will not show in the standard pathology tests like blood tests. The importance of Iridology is the fact that we can treat and support an organ or tissue before it elicits a physiological change. Even when clinical manifestation has occurred, Animal Services Through The Eye can help in treating the cause.
