Pet Allergy Testing and Treatment

At Del Valle Pet Hospital, we understand that allergies can make life uncomfortable for pets and their owners. Our dedicated team is here to provide expert pet allergy services, including comprehensive pet allergy testing, to identify and address your pet’s allergies, ensuring a happier and healthier life for your furry friend.

Common Causes of Allergies in Pets

Our experienced veterinarians specialize in identifying and diagnosing a wide range of pet allergies. Allergies can manifest as skin problems, gastrointestinal issues, or respiratory symptoms. Common pet allergies include:

  • Environmental Allergies: These can include pollen, mold, dust mites, and more, leading to itching, scratching, and skin infections.
  • Food Allergies: Some pets may have allergies to specific ingredients in their food, resulting in digestive problems, skin issues, and ear infections.
  • Flea Allergies: Even a single flea bite can trigger an allergic reaction in some pets, causing severe itching and discomfort.
  • Contact Allergies: Certain materials or substances your pet comes into contact with can lead to skin irritations or allergies.

Diagnosis and Treatment of Pet Allergies

Our pet allergy testing methods, including blood and skin tests, are designed to pinpoint the specific allergens affecting your pet, allowing for targeted and effective treatment.

Once we’ve identified your pet’s allergies, our team will work closely with you to develop a personalized treatment plan. This plan may include:

  • Allergen Avoidance: We’ll provide guidance on reducing your pet’s exposure to allergens in their environment or diet.
  • Medications: Allergy medications can help alleviate your pet’s symptoms and improve their comfort.
  • Immunotherapy: In some cases, we may recommend allergy shots (subcutaneous immunotherapy) or oral immunotherapy (sublingual) to desensitize your pet’s immune system to allergens.

Our commitment to compassionate care extends to helping you manage your beloved companion’s allergies effectively. We understand the impact of allergies on your pet’s quality of life and are here to provide relief and comfort.
