Allergies and skin issues can cause significant discomfort and irritation, making your dog or cat feel downright miserable. Common signs of skin and allergy conditions include:
To determine the cause of your pet’s allergy or skin condition, our veterinarians can perform a test called serum allergy testing, when necessary. With serum allergy testing, we take a small blood sample which is then processed at an outside laboratory. This test will help us identify the specific allergens that are causing your pet’s allergic reaction. Once we have identified the cause, your pet may be treated using a serum that contains small quantities of these allergens. Over time, this will reduce the response to the problem allergens and relieve your pet of their symptoms.
