An animal allergy can develop when our immune system has an abnormal response to an animal’s skin cells, saliva or urine. Symptoms of this allergic reaction typically include itchy eyes, runny nose, rash, coughing or wheezing. Any animal may cause an allergic reaction, but cats, dogs, stinging insects and exotic animals such as birds are the most common. While animal allergies aren’t normally life-threatening, they can trigger an anaphylactic shock in extreme cases. For this reason, Priority Lab Testing offers individual and paneled animal allergy testing for cats, dogs and stinging insects to help you identify methods of treatment.
