Unfortunately, there is no easy way to make a diagnosis for many allergic patients. To establish what is causing your pet’s skin problems we will work with you over 2-3 months. We may also need to refer you to a veterinary dermatologist for intradermal skin testing to help us identify which hay fever allergens might be affecting your pet.
An accurate diagnosis gives us our widest set of treatment options. The effectiveness and side effects of treatment options vary between patients. Amongst these options, we will choose the strategy that best suits you and your pet. The purpose is to find the best way to manage your pet’s allergy for the long term (not just a quick fix).
