Have you ever had your pets tested for allergies?
It seems like as of recent, the human race is becoming more and more allergic to products, foods and outdoor irritants. So it got me thinking, is the same trend happening to our pets?
Our dog is just as much a part of the family as anyone. So I thought it would be a good idea to see if she had any pet allergies. I found out about IMMUNEIQ Pet Allergy Testing, and followed the steps to see if Daisy had any #petallergies.
First, you sign up for a simple at-home evaluation ($87) from ImmuneIQ.
Once you receive the pet allergy test in the mail, you’ll be on your way to finding out any allergies or toxicities your pet might have. Some signs of pet irritations are itching, chewing, ear infections, watery eyes and more.
The in-home pet allergy test included a intake form and a pre-paid mail in envelope. The intake form had a small plastic sealable bag for a hair sample and another for a saliva sample. I obtained these samples very easily and quickly, without any harm or irritation to my dog. I simply brushed her hair for the hair sample and ran the provided cotton swab along her gums and teeth for the saliva sample. She didn’t seem bothered in the least!
Both the pet hair and saliva are needed in determining what pet allergies my dog may have. Taking these two samples is much less involved than a skin prick or scraping of her skin!
After I obtained the needed samples, I mailed them in with their pre-paid envelope.
It wasn’t long before the results came back. I was presented with Daisy’s pet allergy results in a timely manner via email. I was also given a call by an IMMUNEIQ representative who was genuinely willing to answer any questions I had about the results. That’s a nice personal touch!
Here is just a small portion of the results that came back for my dog:
The full pet allergy test results included details on protein, carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, fatty acids, nutritional supplements, and environmental factors. The results covered over 125 different ingredients and common allergens. There was also tips and further guides at the end of the allergy results for my dog. The test results were easy to read and understand, unlike a tricky doctor’s explanation!
Overall, the dog allergy test from ImmuneIQ was reasonable, especially compared to the +$1,000 tests that are more intrusive in a veterinarian hospital. The response test was thorough, my results were 4-pages long! I am glad to have the results so I can avoid certain food and environmental factors with my dog, which means she feels better and in turn saves money on potential health issues in the future. My hope is, by avoiding foods like dairy and corn, Daisy will lead a more happy and healthy dog life!
