Dog Allergy Blood Test (Labcorp)
This Dog Allergy test is used to determine if a person may have an allergic reaction by looking for IgE Antibodies to dog hair or dander. Dander is particles of dead skin which are shed from a dog's body. These can collect on any surface or be found in the air. Allergies can develop at any time in a person's life. According to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America, 15-30% of people with allergies are allergic to dogs or cats.
Common symptoms of Dog Allergies can include coughing, itchy eyes, runny nose, and skin reactions such as a rash or hives. People with a strong allergic reaction or health issues such as asthma may experience severe breathing problems.
The Dog Allergy test typically sees results in 3-5 business days.
