Saliva Testing

Saliva Testing.

The original methods developed for study of Siberians alllergen levels were developed 2005.  Up to 40 percent of tests performed with this method have severe errors.

These old-style tests were highly inaccurate, resulting in errors both low and high.  Consistency required a minimum of 3 separate saliva samples from each to obtain some level of consistency.

The majority of breeders using these methods did not perform multiple tests, and some used these methods have been tried for testing allergen levels in kittens.  

Siberian Research no longer recommends or provides test information.

 

KittenTesting.com offers a saliva test that is more accurate, can be used with young kittens, and is safer.
