5 Reasons Why EasyDNA’s Dog Allergy Test is the Best Allergy Test


Did you know that problems with sensitivities is the number 2 reason pet owners visit the veterinarian? Like humans, dogs are also prone to developing allergies and intolerances, but unlike the ones that we experience, the symptoms a dog might experience may not be as evident.

Dog intolerances and sensitivities can be brought about by a number of reasons, such as fleas, environment, and food. Symptoms of allergies can range from dermatitis or itchy skin to gastrointestinal symptoms like diarrhoea and vomiting. If you suspect your dog is suffering from these symptoms, the next course of action is to have him tested to identify the culprit.

Fortunately, Dog Allergy test is now available at just here!

By analysing your dog’s cheek cell samples, we can identify your dog’s intolerances and sensitivities to food and environmental allergens. In addition, the test does not require any needle pricking and is very easy to apply, safe and painless.

Here are 5 reasons why you should choose Dog Allergy test for your dog.

1. It is quick and painless.

Unlike the traditional skin test, our Dog Allergy test does not involve needles, and there is no need to subject your dog to allergens just to find out which substance he is sensitive to. All we need is a sample of his cheek cells, to be taken via our swab kit, which should not take you more than a minute.

2. EasyDNA’s Dog Allergy test is efficient.

By analysing your dog’s DNA, we can determine the list of allergens potentially triggering your dog’s reactions. Using the sample you provide, we can extract the protein and measure its reaction to more than 110 various known allergens. You can view the full list of the allergens we test for

Your dog’s intolerance to each allergen will then be ranked as one of the following:

  • Strong Intolerance – This means your dog is positively allergic to the allergen.

  • No Intolerance – This means your dog is not allergic to the allergen.

  • Mild Intolerance – This means your dog may be sensitive to the allergen, but the levels of reaction are not high enough to warrant a Strong Intolerance reading.

3. The entire procedure is simple and straightforward.

The procedure is not complicated or challenging. You will be provided a test kit that contains a saliva collection device (you can view the sample collection instructions

The kit contains a set of easy-to-follow instructions that will guide you in collecting your dog’s sample, which will be sent back to us for testing.

A Dog Allergy Test Helped Dogs Like Sabueso

A Podenco Ibicenco named Sabueso was suffering from an unknown allergy, which caused him to constantly scratch at his skin. Despite his owner’s efforts to remove commonly known allergens from his diet, the allergic symptoms persisted.

The test results revealed a rather bizarre list of allergens Sabueso is sensitive to: Brussels sprouts, duck, lamb, orange, sardines, wheat and yams.

After these foods were eliminated from Sabueso’s diet, he has stopped licking and scratching at his skin, which definitely improved his overall wellness

Other Beneficial Tests For Your Dog

Aside from our Dog Allergy test, we also offer Dog Breed DNA testing, which analyses your dog’s unique genetic makeup to identify his breed or breed mix. We can test your dog’s DNA against our database, which contains DNA profiles of 95 of the most prevalent dog breeds found in mixed breed dogs.

This test also provides you a report detailing your dog’s personality traits and behaviours to help you come up with a health plan that best suits him. We also provide a detailed guide about the health problems your dog’s particular breed mix is susceptible to.

Also available is our Dog Genetic Age testing, which can identify your dog’s genetic age by measuring the length of his telomeres. Determining your dog’s biological age will give insight into his health status and may also help predict his longevity.

By recognizing the potential medical risks that come with your dog’s biological age, you will be able to take control of your dog’s ageing process and mitigate possible problems by making necessary lifestyle and dietary changes.
