Allergy Testing and New Therapies

 The most common clinical sign of allergy (Atopic Dermatitis) in dogs and cats is itchy skin, which can lead to:

  • Scratching, biting, and chewing at the skin
  • Excessive face rubbing
  • Excessive grooming
  • Hair loss
  • Recurrent ear infections

The usual locations of the itching are the belly, feet, base of tail, and face, especially around the eyes, mouth, and ears.  Less commonly observed signs include sneezing, coughing, and asthma.

We can now test for allergies with a simple blood test and then treat with either weekly injections or twice a day oral therapy drops.

The cost for the test is approximately $200.00 and the monthly cost for the shots or oral drops are $35-$40.
