Sometimes it can take a long time for symptoms of food allergies to develop. Very often pets become allergic or intolerant to a food that they have been eating for months. Keep in mind that any dog food that is not appropriately stored can contain yeast and mites that may cause severe reactions. Store your pet’s dry food in a firmly closed container, preferably in the refrigerator, and canned food in the refrigerator only after opening.
Pet Preferred Diagnostics has the newest technologies for allergy tests for dogs and cats as well as a unique food intolerance (IgG) test that can screen a serum sample for 54 harmful food ingredients. We require less than 1 ml of serum for the largest 100 allergen panel and less than 0.5 ml for all other tests.
