    wow! a hair test really? they don't have to run a blood test? I need to look into that.. the blood test runs about $300 Is this something common? do all vets have the ability to run this test?

    Karenben told me about Mark from the UK that does hair analysis.
    I was at the end of my rope with Lily.
    She is only 6 months so I knew I had to wait to do the blood test.
    I figured I could try the hair test and see what it come back with.
    And for us it was spot on.
    The test only cost me like $47.00 bucks and mark was great and very helpful.
    I still plan on doing the blood test but this was at least a place for me to start and now I have some answers.
    All and all I am very happy that I went ahead and did this.
    And I hope Lily will be a lot happier in the long run to!

    Thanks again so much Karen.
    I see what you mean about taking months to recover from a allergic reaction.
    Lily still isn't right yet.
    But at least I have some answers and a great place to start.
    Hugs to you my friend!

    Yea that what I thought to. I couldn't understand why Lily didn't do well on the beef.
    It never dawned on me till I got the results back and looked at both bags of kibble.

    You would be surprised what's in kibble and even tiny amounts of something can get a dog itching,as I said Annie was allergic to spelt and rye ,I was faw feeding and it took me sometime to realise that I was feeding it to her through the raw meat!,if a dog is still itching after a food change then testing is a must .the build up is massive if fed over a long period of time,and I truly believe that allergies are from over vaccination and bad breeding,if a dog has a slight itch then it should never be bred from and after puppy shots no boosters whatsoever ,this is how I feel now after seeing Annie suffer so much and reading all the terrible info regarding vacs,sorry to sound likejob's comforter lol,karen
