Pet Allergy Test

Cat & Dog Allergy


Test Code: 602454, 602456
Specimen Type: Blood

Description:

Pet Allergy Test

This panel includes blood tests for cat and dog allergies.  These tests look for IgE antibodies to help determine if a person has an allergic reaction to dog and cat hair or dander (dead skin flakes).  About 5-10% of Americans have pet allergies.  Common allergy symptoms include irritated or watery eyes, sneezing, congestion, and hives or rash.  For people with Asthma the reaction can be more severe.  Depending on the severity of their reaction, people with allergies may need to remove the source of the allergens from their living space entirely. 

These tests are typically ordered when a person is suspected of having a pet allergy.  For other testing options, please see our Allergy Testing Category.

Turnaround for these tests is typically 3-5 business days.

Note: Result turn around times are an estimate and are not guaranteed. Our reference lab may need additional time due to weather, holidays, confirmation/repeat testing, or equipment maintenance.
