Pet Owners

Just like you, our team love our pets. We know that allergies can have a huge impact on the lives of animals and their families, which is why we are passionate about helping allergic pets lead happier and healthier lives.

 

We work closely with veterinary practices to provide high-quality allergy tests and therapies, alongside training and education; key tools in creating successful long-term management plans for allergic animals. Please note we only accept samples from UK veterinary practices.

What are allergies?

When a normally harmless substance is identified by an allergic animal as a ‘threat’, their immune system produces an inappropriate response. This is known as an allergic reaction.

 

Just like humans, animals can be allergic to food and pollen, as well as things like mites and fleas. The substance an animal is allergic to is called an allergen. Animals can be allergic to just one allergen, or more commonly a few different ones at the same time.

 

When an allergic animal comes into contact with the allergens it can lead to symptoms which can affect their skin, ears, paws, tummy and breathing.

What should I do next?

If you think your pet might have an allergy, your vet is always best placed to discuss things further. There are lots of potential reasons for your animal’s symptoms, one of which could be allergy.

 

If your animal is diagnosed with an allergy, the next step is to try and work out what exactly is causing it. Your vet will advise whether allergy testing and therapies are suitable for your pet’s individual needs.

 

Getting the right information and correct diagnosis at the start of the process can take some time, but doing this will help you manage your pet’s condition and provide the best lifelong solution for a happier life.
