    Default annies allergy test results

    i decided to get annie tested for allergies so i sent hair samples off to a holistic testing practitioner ,although her scratching is 90%better shes still itching a little which is a pain,shes allergic to dust mite,gold,housefly,dog!!!!,down,wool,ultraviolet rays,spider,ants,diesel fuel,chicken,cheese,trout,and a few irritants which are not allergies,i was sent a bottle of holistic meds for her for 6 weeks ,the man at the lab telephoned me and said that he can get rid of her allergies so im hopefull,so i pulled all my carpets up lol,the old man had a fit!!!!,i was really worried as i thought i would have to stop raw feeding but its only chicken shes allergic to and i guessed that anyway as i did with the wool,i put her itching down to ocd as antihistamines dont work on her but it turns out shes not mad oh and shes allergic to eggs and garlic ,both of which she has daily,he advised me to simmer fresh lavender for 20 mins ,add 2 slices of lemon let it sit overnight .strain it and put it into a spray bottle to use on her every 3 days as it will repell fleas and mites,he also does the vaccines that do not compromise the immune system,he said that most dogs get allergy through over vacs and frontline and other topical flea treatments,all this testing ,meds and advice cost me only 25 english pound,a bargain ,so i will keep you posted on annies progress,karen

    Thats great that you got her tested. Now she is on her way to itch free hopefully...Can you PM me where you sent it to? Most of our vets around here either dont know what it is or want 500 to test.

    Wow, Karen only 25 quid...bargain
    Annie as always looks beautiful and her face is sooo white how do you do it?
    Keep us informed if the lavender spray works...I dont currently use anty flee meds on Lucy, I use it on the cat and thats it. so far "touch wood" we havn't had a problem

    Ultra violet rays!! I see lots of sunblock in your future...My eldest son used to get prickly heat and hives when it was sunny and the only way we prevented it was with factor 50 total sunblock.
    and DOG?! too. not something that ever would have crossed my mind.

    Same here please if that's ok.
    I want to have Lily tested but I wasn't sure where to go..

    That was such a great idea. I hope she starts to feel much better soon!

    Her face looks so good and she is such a beautiful girl! Keep us posted too on the progress as well as how well the flea repellent works. I would love to use something more natural.

    @karenben
    She looks so good and I'm so glad you got some hopeful advice. I'll be interested in how things work out...am definately going to try the lavender and lemon spray here ( if nothing else the dogs will smell lovely, lol).... Was recently at the vet dermatologist to get allergy tested for my bullie....but she found yeast all over him and wants to get that under control before testing for allergies....

    I'm rethinking food again...I have some friends who feed raw but my Schultz isn't the best chewer and I always fear he will choke... Just wish the dehydrated raw food I give him now didn't have potatoes ....anyways best of luck ....give that beautiful Annie a big hug from us....

    My goal in life is to be as good a person as my dog thinks I am ~ author unknown
