Fighting the cause of allergy
An effective way of treating allergy is avoidance. However, this is practically not an option in most cases. Not only are many allergens like mites, grasses, weeds and trees pollen difficult to avoid, allergy to multiple allergens is particularly challenging to address through avoidance.
Therefore, the premier choice for treating allergy is immunotherapy. It is a solution which is safe, effective and for long-term use. After determining what the dog, cat or horse is allergic to through our allergy tests, Alergovet Immunotherapy keeps the allergy under control ensuring that the symptoms are greatly reduced or even eliminated. Alergovet Immunotherapies are the most innovative in the maket.
Immunotherapy and how it works
Immunotherapy works by giving repeated doses of allergens, thereby stimulating an immune response in the body, which leads to the build-up of immunological tolerance. The only etiological treatment may change the course of allergic disease while at the same time taking the allergy symptoms below the symptom threshold. Alergovet Immunotherapy is available in shots (subcutaneous injections) and spray (perioral).
The immunotherapy is custom-made for each patient, based on the allergens identified through our allergy testing together with the clinical history. The efficacy rate for Alergovet Immunotherapy is about 85%. Most patients see improvements within a few months. Alergovet Immunotherapy has virtually no side effects and can therefore be given for long periods.
Compliance with the patient’s allergy treatment plan is key. Close adherence to the treatment schedule will accelerate the pet’s recovery and allergy relief.

Shampoos and essential fatty acid supplements
In conjunction with immunotherapy, bathing may help relieve itching and remove environmental allergens from the pet’s skin. It is key to pick the right shampoo, as frequent bathing with the wrong product can dry out the skin. Also, essential fatty acids have an important role in supporting skin health. By being a structural component of the cellular membranes, essential fatty acids help maintain the skin barrier and prevent penetration of allergens through the skin. In addition, essential fatty acids have an anti-inflammatory effect, alleviating symptoms of itching and scratching. Parasitic control and an adequate diet are also key factors.
