Food Allergy & Atopy
Meet the Lemmons "Frenchie" brothers, Beastie & Batman. These 2 year old litter mates came to us two months ago for a year long history of year round itchiness, but really came to a head when they were boarded. They were started on a diet trial but ultimately decided to allergy test as well. Today their allergen was formulated for injections and they received a Cytopoint injection to control their itch, for now. Their IDAT (intradermal allergy test) showed
mostly reactions to grasses but Batman also had
reactions to storage and dust mites.
Their recovery was smooth.
They did really well and were very good boys.
We will follow their progress with immunotherapy
(allergy shots) and keep you updated.

L.B. the allergy dog!
My retired racing greyhound came off the track with numerous health issues primarily stemming from untreated allergies. Since she had both food and environmental allergies, I put her on an elimination diet at the suggestion of our dermatologist, Dr. Newton.
The elimination diet was vital, giving much information on how to then proceed. Thanks to some very special Vets/Specialists my arsenal is large enough to address any new issues that come up while still maintaining the basics to keep her comfortable in her own skin.
The most important application in our arsenal is the "Allergy Vial" which was formulated after the allergy test results came back. My dear baby is no longer on all those allergy meds due to administering her "allergy vial" once to twice a day, under the tongue and it's done.
I know how vital the "allergy vial" applications are for the following reason. As the vial nears empty, the potency seems to lessen and her symptoms being returning..... itching, licking, watery eyes, etc. When the new allergy vial arrives and administered, those symptoms all cool down and she's comfortable again. It seems the only side effect administering the vial is a happy and comfortable girl in retirement. It's quite extraordinary.
Thank you Dr. Newton & your wonderful staff.
