Pet Allergy testing:

Pet allergies are abnormal reactions by the Pet’s immune system against a normally harmless substance. Allergens are substances that the Pet’s body sees as harmful and thus trigger the Animal’s immune system. Allergies can affect Pets in a wide variety of ways: Dermal Effects (Welts, bumps, redness, rashes, hair loss, ear infections); Respiratory Effects (runny nose, discharge from the eyes, wheezing, coughing, constriction of the airway); Digestive Effects (food intolerance, food allergy, and both can result in vomiting, diarrhea, and chronic digestive upset); Systemic Effects (allergic reaction, anaphylaxis  can result in facial swelling, swelling of the airway, sudden drops in blood pressure, seizure, and even death). There are several causes of allergies in pets. To diagnose and treat Your Pet’s allergies, we provide both Intradermal skin testing and food trials - most allergies can be managed appropriately with a combination of avoidance, supplementation, medication and food trials.
