Our dog allergy test is a very useful and affordable tool to determine the sensitivities and intolerances that may be impacting your dog’s quality of life. Problems with such uncomfortable sensitivities are the #2 reason for visiting the vet. This test will provide you with a list of the allergens that are potentially making your dog unhappy or triggering reactions. The results provide information about foods and supplements that would be of potential benefit if eliminated from the dog’s diet plus a guide as to what household products, food, treats and supplements can be beneficial for your dog or for which they show no reaction to. You will also have detailed information about the allergens your dog tested positive for and include dietary and lifestyle guidelines such as the use of corticosteroids, elimination diets, topical treatments, supplements; like probiotics and Omega-3 oils- and much more. The intolerance level of the dog to each allergen is ranked in one of three ways: Strong Intolerance – positive for the allergen tested No Intolerance – negative for the allergen tested Mild Intolerance – be reacting to the allergen but levels are not high enough for a positive reading Results for this test will be sent by email around 2-3 weeks from receipt of samples at the laboratory.

We will send out the kit once we have processed your order and you may collect samples quickly and painlessly from your dog following the instructions in the kit. Important notes: The Dog Allergy test is not a DNA test. It is also not a typical allergy test. This test uses the proteins in the dog’s system to help you learn the sensitivities and intolerances your pet may be experiencing so you can have a better understanding of what they may not be able to tolerate. There are a number of options available to deal with these sensitivities. We recommend discussing them with your veterinarian to find the solution that is best for you. This can include introducing a new diet to your canine or eliminating certain foods and medications. There are a number of different drugs and medications that can affect your test results and these include antihistamines and steroids. If the dog being tested is taking any of these, please do not collect the sample until they have been off them for at least 48 hours (although ideally even up to 7 days).
