ALLERGY TEST OPTIONS

Spit Testing

Can be performed at home

  • Not a typical allergy test

  • Uses the proteins from the dog/cat spit to help you learn the sensitivities and intolerances

  • Tests for antibodies which can also show immune responses that are classified as true allergies

  • Recognized by many as the most accurate method to measure your pet’s sensitivities

  • Will provide you with a list of the allergens that are potentially making your pet unhappy or triggering reactions

  • Will show you what food they may not be able to tolerate

  • Must stop giving antihistamines and steroids for at least 7 days before collecting the saliva

Can be performed at home

  • Also called Bio-Resonance Testing

  • Will identify non-life threatening imbalances in the body that may be causing symptoms such as upset stomach, constant scratching, hair loss, hot spots, paw biting​

  • Tests for intolerances or temporary imbalances. Does not test for true allergic reactions

  • Your pet can continue with any medication or supplement they are taking on a routine basis

  • Food & Treat Intolerance Test (255 pet food ingredients tested for intolerances)

  • Environmental Intolerance Test

  • Nutrition Test (will determine whether your pet’s body is absorbing the necessary nutrients properly from the current nutrition plan)

  • Metal & Mineral Test (will indicate which toxins are creating an imbalance in your pet’s body and prohibiting their body’s ability to process and eliminate these items properly)

Blood Testing

Only performed by a Veterinarian

  • The laboratory tests the blood, looking for allergen-specific antibodies (IgE) against a number of allergens

  • Measuring an immune system response

  • Can easily be collected during a routine wellness visit

  • Does not require pets to go off of their medication prior to testing

  • Does have a tendency to have false positives - may require Intradermal Testing to be done also

Intradermal Testing

Only performed by Veterinary Dermatologists

  • Typically considered to be the most accurate method

  • Measuring an immune system response

  • Performed by injecting small quantities of allergens into the dog/cat skin

  • Pet must be unconscious during the test

  • Hair must be shaved

  • By examining the visible skin reactions at each injection site, a dermatologist can determine which allergens exist

  • May need to stop medications for up to 2 weeks before testing is scheduled

  • Females should not be tested if pregnant or in heat

  • Pets should be tested at the end of their allergy season (typically in the fall)

  • No baths should be given in the five days before testing

  • Pets must be fasted the morning of the procedure (to allow for safe sedation)
