Can I Test My Pet for Allergies? - Test Your Intolerance New Zealand

Your pet is part of your family, and now you can treat him or her like royalty, specifically in their health. We understand that you want to make sure that you know everything about your dog or cat’s health, just like you would want to know about your own son or daughter’s health. That’s specifically why we now have a pet allergy test that is going to allow you to know every detail about keeping your dog or cat at their happiest when it comes to their diet.

How does a pet allergies test work?

You’ll be happy to know that an allergy test for pets is going to be similar to one that is given for a human. You’ll receive a sample kit in the mail that will include specific instructions on how to retrieve the fur/hair from your dog, cat, horse and more. You’ll send that hair sample off to the lab, and it will be tested against 30 food items.

These 30 food items are a carefully chosen list of allergens that are going to most common for an animal to react to — similar to the list put together for a human — and they are also common additives to pet food and treats. 

It’s all about results done your way

When you are looking at getting an allergy test for your dog or other furry companions, it’s nice to know that you won’t have to deal with blood samples or anything else that will make most animals skittish without proper exposure.

Whether you suspect your animal has an allergy or you just want to make sure that you are prepared for the future, you’ll find the pet allergies test to be simple, stress-free, and conclusive.

When the results that are mailed back to you, you’ll find comfort in taking note of the results, be positive or negative. Even if the allergen is something as seemingly obscure as shellfish, it’s nice to know that your dog has a list that can be used when having to change to a new food or treats brand that could potentially have an allergen for your pet. All it takes is one reaction for you to see just how serious a pet allergy is — just like in a human.

You are critical in making sure that your dog or cat stays in good health. After all, they will want to eat anything and everything they can get their paws and mouths on. Are they going to take the time to read the ingredients list on the back to check for allergens? Of course not. In fact, they’ll probably chew through in their haste to get inside.

So, it’s all on you. Make sure that you stay one step ahead of your furry companion and look at a pet allergies test as a crucial step in your pet’s adventure to good health and happiness. You are his parent, and you are the only one who is going to be able to take care of him properly in the pampered way that he deserves…make sure that a pet allergy test is a piece of that package.
