At Home Pet Allergy Assessment #petallergies

1x1.trans At Home Pet Allergy Assessment #petallergiesI received a free kit in exchange for an honest review.

1x1.trans At Home Pet Allergy Assessment #petallergiesFor years now we have known Jewel had some sort of allergy.  Every fall she would itch constantly, and develop scabs around her neck from itching so much. The vet would give her a steroid shot and she would be so much better within a few days. The vet said we could do allergy testing, but it was very expensive, and it was probably just something associated with our HVAC unit that was triggering it when the heat came on.  After a few years, we moved, and Jewels fall allergy wasn’t nearly as bad.

Jewel also gets feline acne on occasion.  The vet suggested we buy the circle acne pads that are made for very sensitive skin and use them on her face a few times a week.  It seemed to work, but we were never sure what was really causing it.

Lately Jewel has been losing weight but all her blood work and other lab tests came back normal.  We even checked her stool for parasites / infection and that came back completely normal. The vet suggested we try switching her food to a “senior” diet. Continue reading
