pet allergy treatmentPets are part of the family. 

It’s sad and overwhelming when you realize your beloved pet is the source of your running nose, watering eyes, or even asthma attacks. 

According to a survey by the ASPCA, 6.12 million households rehome a pet every five years. When asked why, allergies ranked in the top slot for rehoming cats and third space for dogs.

Whether you’re moving in with a new partner or have developed a pet allergy later in life, you do have solutions before you make the painful decision to part with your pet.

Start with Pain-Free Allergy Testing in Temple, TX

When people hear the word “allergy testing,” a painful and tedious process probably comes to mind.

That’s not the case anymore. 

Previously, testing involved pricking your skin, inserting a tiny bit of a suspected allergen, waiting for a reaction, and repeating the process for other allergens. 

At Temple Allergy and Wellness, we use the Multi-Test PC 2 from Lincoln Diagnostics. Not only can this system test for multiple allergens at once but it also blocks pain signals, so the test is completely painless.

Plus, the Multi-Test PC 2 delivers much clearer and straightforward results. 

On your end, testing is much faster and less stressful. On our end, we can give you more accurate results.

Try Immunotherapy Drops to Treat Your Pet Allergy

If you do end up having an allergy to your cat or dog, you have options available before deciding to rehome your pet. 

Immunotherapy drops are a natural and effective solution for many allergy sufferers. By introducing a small amount of the allergen to your body, your immune system builds a tolerance. 

The best part? You can take immunotherapy drops safely at home, work, or anywhere.

Most patients say that one treatment schedule tends to last between three and five years.

Don’t rehome your pet until you try immunotherapy drops. Schedule an appointment now by calling 254-778-6475.
