NiL (Non-invasive Lab) is one of the few laboratories in Europe that uses non-invasive methods for measuring stress hormones (glucocorticoids) and Immunoglobuline A in horses.
Stress hormones and IgA can be extracted reliably from saliva or faeces and can be analyzed quantitatively. In contrast to blood sampling, the sampling can be done by the animal owner and does not cause unnecessary stress for the animal. Thus the consultation of a vet becomes unnecessary and no additional costs arise.
The analysis provides reliable and precise results about the stress level of the animal.
