New Allergy Test for Dogs | EasyDNA UK

Why Should You Have Your Dog Allergy Tested?

It is essential to determine if your dog suffers from any allergies that could affect both its health and quality of life. Allergies differ from sensitivities or intolerances; allergens cause a reaction in the body because the immune system identifies them as threats and activates the production of IgE antibodies. These antibodies can lead to various symptoms, ranging from reddening of the skin to life-threatening respiratory problems in your furry friend.

We strongly recommend performing the New Dog Allergy Test as part of your pet’s general health check-up or if your dog exhibits symptoms such as excessive licking, itchy skin with redness, inflammation, or a rough texture; hair loss; watery eyes, sneezing, or coughing; recurrent gastrointestinal problems; presence of vomiting or diarrhoea of unknown origin; and, if your pet has experienced frequent ear infections or constantly shakes its head.

This is NOT an Intolerance Test!

It is important to understand that this test is an actual allergy test and NOT an intolerance test.

 

  • The results of the intolerance test will change over time depending on the diet of the dog and environmental conditions. Therefore, remedies and diets can change over time.
  • The results of the allergy test are more permanent and potentially serious, and the results need to be addressed in a different manner. So monitoring a pet with an allergy is very important.
  • The price of the allergy test will always be higher than an intolerance test even though less allergens are tested.

We recommend you familiarise well with the test you are ordering.
