Everything you need to know about Allergy Testing Dogs therapies


How can you treat your dog allergy with non-medicinal Allergy Testing Dogs therapy?

So you just have gotten the results for Allergy Testing Dogs procedures and find out that your canine friend is allergic to some common environmental allergen? If so, the first thing you need to keep in mind is that you can’t cure the allergies but can treat them successfully. To treat dog allergies, various types of treatments are available to consider, including taking an oral medication, topical therapy, bathing, and injectable antigen therapy.

The type of medicinal antigen you should get for your dog depends largely on your Allergy Testing Dogs report and the symptoms your dog is depicting. Also, it largely depends upon the previous medical conditions of your dog and the severity of allergy symptoms. Besides taking medicines orally, you might need to get your dog for a special type of therapy including

  • Food therapy

Placing your dog on non processed fresh food diet can begin to build and repair the immune system and feeding foods that have natural antihistamine. Antihistamines work by blocking the effects of histamine, which is responsible for many of the symptoms of an allergic reaction.

  • Antipruritic therapy

This medicinal therapy includes corticosteroids, antihistamines, and Apoquel to target the irritating itch reactions by suppressing the primary substance which is causing the itch.

  • Hyposensitization therapy

This therapy is conducted once the allergens are identified. In this treatment, allergy shots are given to the dog every week in the form of injections. Repeated dosing desensitizes and reprograms your dog’s immune system.

  • Shampoo therapy

To remove the allergens to which your pet’s body is exposed and to remove the dead skin cells, bathing can prove a highly effective method. Bathing is also very helpful to cure secondary infections caused by bacteria and yeast. Especially the shampoos having anti-inflammatory agents can benefit your dog even further by comforting him.

  • Anti-inflammatory therapy

In this medicinal therapy, the allergies of your dog are treated with special anti-inflammatory drugs like antihistamines and corticosteroids. These medicines tend to block the irritating reaction immediately, in most cases.

  • Immune modulators

These modulators reduce and modify the response of your dog’s immune system to reduce irritation, caused by exposure to allergens.
