For 30 years Spectrum Veterinary has been the global leader in veterinary allergy testing and treatment. Do you think your loved one is suffering from allergies? Check our list of symptoms and talk to your Veterinarian about the patented SPOT test.
The patented SPOT test is the most trusted in-vitro (blood/serum) allergy test on the market. With thousands of veterinary partners around the country and represented in 70 countries worldwide, our test has become recognized as the gold standard for serum allergy testing.
Regional Specific Testing
Each allergen panel takes into account the weeds, trees, grasses, and insects prevalent in your area. Learn about the allergens that we test for in your area with our interactive allergy map.
Testing is the first step, but the real value comes with our steroid-free, USDA approved hyposensitization. Each set is custom made based on your pet’s allergies. This is the ONLY safe, long-term allergy relief available.
How Does It Work?
Yes, Pet's CAN Have Allergies!
Spectrum Veterinary’s allergy test, SPOT, is a laboratory-based serum allergy test performed under the supervision of a licensed Veterinarian.
If you suspect your pet has allergies (related: list of symptoms), contact your Veterinarian to rule out any other possible diseases. If it is in fact allergies, your Veterinarian will draw a small amount of blood and ship it to our labs in Phoenix, Arizona. Once a sample arrives at our labs, it is labeled and examined for quality. Then it is run through our proprietary testing where the blood is introduced to regionally specific allergenic extracts. Based on how the serum reacts when introduced to the extracts, we are able to accurately pinpoint your pet’s allergies.
Once we have completed the testing, the only safe, effective, and long-term allergy treatment works to not only increase an animal’s tolerance to offending allergens but with Spectrum Veterinary, it also provides the convenience of a steroid-independent testing methodology. This allows us to keep the animal comfortable during the diagnostic phase until such time as hyposensitization treatment begins.
