    Post Allergy results are in!

    So I went with Holistic Remedies for allergy testing my bully as some of the recommendations on this site. If you remember my bully had hotspots, and pimple like bumps/sores on his skin. These have since cleared up on their own as we have yet to change anything with his food etc... He still has an occasional spot he will dig at but is doing much better. We are still feeding Earthborn Meadow Feast, and about due for a new bag, as his results came back the only ingredient in his food he is flagged for is spinach. He doesn't seem to be affected by it but again, it's hard to tell. Below are his full results. Another flag for me is the "weak connective tissues" and 'Vaccination disruption" He is due for his shots next month, he will be 15 months old.-epson003-jpg

    I thinks the results make sense, and seem to be logical. At least I have an idea. There are no more treats in the house so that should cover the wheat and flour/baked goods allergies. As for the spinach allergy, I wish I knew to what degree is he allergic. He cant be getting that high of a dosage in his feedings I wouldn't think. His bumps are pretty much done and gone, just one hotspot like area on his neck, could be just a dirty bully. Ive been much more diligent about wiping his whole body down two times a week or so, wrinkes, face, ears and tail. His environmental allergies did show dust mites, which we also have been doing more laundering of his bedding and blankets and vacuuming more often. The test also stated his eyes are inflamed. His eyes are actually very clean and clear. Not watery and his tear staining is mostly gone. I will keep you posted as I have started giving the remedy provided by the test, we will see what develops.

    I just sent out my hair samples to them yesterday.
    I can't wait to get results back.
    The waiting is the worse part!!
    about how long did it take to get the results back?

    It must feel good to get some answers.

    It took a little over a week both ways as the packages have to clear customs when entering from a foreign destination. It was about 3 1/2 weeks total as he only runs the test on certain days of the week. Good luck!

    If he has vacs damage then don't have boosters,ask for a titre test that will tell you just what his immunity is to the diseases dogs are vaccinated against,if you give him the boosters it will just cause more damage,I couldn't read the test results but it sounds like its not too bad,karen

    Did the results not show up for you? If you have time to check them out please do and let me know your thoughts. The vaccination disruption may have been from when I took him in when his skin was a mess and the vet gave him some a shot for it. I don't remember what he was given. I will have to ask about the titre test
