Pets have allergies just like humans; identifying and removing those allergens will make their lives much happier.
Allergic reactions usually come from:
For inhaled triggers and skin irritants, we offer serum allergy testing, which is a blood test, or intradermal skin testing, which is a scratch test done on a small shaved area. Food allergy testing is not commonly done for animals. If we determine your pet has developed a food sensitivity, Blackhawk Veterinary Hospital will be happy to recommend a particular brand of food that does not contain common allergens.
