Food Testing Questions


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.

We recommend feeding the patient a hydrolyzed diet. Protein sources in hydrolyzed diets have been subjected to a manufacturing process that breaks protein down into molecules too small to be recognized as antigens by the immune system and cannot cause food allergy symptoms.

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.
