Animal Allergy Testing
At Premier Allergy, Asthma and Sinus Care, we offer comprehensive, mostly needle-free animal skin testing at your first visit. Expanded testing may be available in special cases. This procedure consists of small amounts of protein from each allergen to be placed on the most superficial layer of skin to determine the extent of your body’s allergic response. Your results will be reviewed with you at the time of your visit by the provider. Check with your insurance regarding allergy testing costs as this can vary with each plan. To skin test, you must be off all antihistamine containing medications for at least 4 days prior to your appointment.
Animal allergies can manifest as asthma, nasal allergy symptoms, eye allergy symptoms, skin allergy symptoms, asthma, or other allergic symptoms. There are a wide variety of treatments available to help patients work around their beloved pets. Our goal is to keep play with your furry friends comfortable regardless of any pet allergies.
