Frequently Asked Questions

Our treatment sets are a prescription product and must be ordered by a Veterinarian. Please contact your Veterinarian to order.

Your Veterinarian will be able to answer any of your questions about allergy testing and treatment of your pet, please contact them.

We are an allergy testing lab and treatment facility, we are not licensed to give out medical advice. Your Veterinarian will have the best knowledge of your pet and how to best help you.

Oils and fats are small molecules, and will not cause an allergic reaction by the immune system. Omega-3 fatty acid supplements, like fish oil, are a great supplement for any animal that has allergies.

To introduce the pet to a new batch of allergens, a newly formulated refill vial will start with a smaller dose, given more frequently. We call this a loading dose. The loading dose is a safety precaution, and reduces the possibility of an adverse reaction to freshly formulated, more potent allergens. This will be the norm no matter how long the patient has been on treatment.

Every food test we do comes with a recommended diet list sorted by ingredients the pet is shown allergic to. We, unfortunately, cannot sort by other medical or nutritional needs.

While it has been proven to be safe and effective, immunotherapy is not without risk or side effects. Adverse reactions to treatment can still occur in a small number of patients. About 5% of patients will react to the injections and your Veterinarian will need to make changes in protocol accordingly. If the patient experiences any of the following, contact your Veterinarian immediately:

  • Reddening of the skin
  • Hives
  • Itching
  • Heightened agitation
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Loss of appetite
  • Difficulty breathing
  • Unusual drowsiness
