Going Beyond the Gold Standard
Serum IgE testing and hyposensitization provides lasting relief from allergy and allergy-related symptoms patient’s struggle with. Relief medications (steroids, antihistamines, Cyclosporine and the like) can become more expensive than treatment, especially if you factor in side effects and costs they can create with long-term use. By keeping the patient on relief medications, you allow the disease of allergy to progress.
Serum allergy testing and treatment work 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.
Regionally Specific Testing
The Spot Platinum canine and feline assay is the most comprehensive allergy testing available, with a total of 91 of the most common allergens in your region, including grasses, trees, weeds, common indoor allergens, the 24 most common commercial pet food ingredients, as well as flea, staph and malassezia. Special allergens available upon request.
