NA Dog Allergy Test

Take better control of your dog’s well-being and health with a dog allergy test. Allergy testing is important for any dog owner who has their dog’s best interest at heart as it can make managing allergies easier and provide allergy mitigation strategies that can result in happier and healthier dogs.

What causes allergies?

Common environmental allergens are found everywhere and food allergens will be often found across many dog food brands – for the canine sufferer, their life can be rendered miserable, resulting in very poor health, a lack of energy, mood changes etc. Common environmental triggers include fleas and dust mites as well as moulds and pollens from trees, grasses, weeds and flowers. Allergies are caused by an overactive immune system that perceives harmless substances as threats. This triggers a reaction which can include any of the common symptoms we associate with allergies such as itching and sneezing.

The power of allergy testing

A dog allergy test is a powerful tool to determine what exactly is causing your dog’s allergies. This dog allergy test will not only provide you with a list of the allergens that are making your dog unhappy or triggering their allergic reactions. The results also provide details about the foods and supplements to avoid at all costs and some important guidelines as to what household products, food, treats and supplements can be beneficial for your dog or for which he or she shows no allergic 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.

– How can allergies be treated?

Allergies can be managed by avoiding the allergens which trigger the allergy. It is also possible to manage the allergies through the use of medication or medicated shampoos – however, many times such treatments only mask a problem without finding the root cause. Importantly, allergies cannot actually be treated but rather managed – if a dog has an allergy, there are no actual cures that will make that allergy disappear.
