Fighting the cause of allergy (sv)

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, grass, and tree pollen difficult to avoid, hypersensitivity for multiple allergens is particularly challenging to address through avoidance. It is the unique etiological treatment.

Therefore, the recommended 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 Immunotherapies keeps the allergy under control ensuring that the symptoms are greatly reduced or even eliminated.

Alergovet Immunotherapies are the most innovative in the market, using exclusive technology like allergoids. Therefore, they are the products of choice.

Immunotherapy and how it works

The immunoherapy works by giving repeated doses of allergens, thereby stimulating an immune response in the immunological system which leads to the build-up of immunological tolerance. It is the only treatment which alters the course of allergic disease while at the same time taking the allergy symptoms below the symptom threshold. Alergovet Immunotherapies are available in shots (subcutaneous injections) and perioral in spray.

The immunotherapy is custom-made for each patient, based on the allergens identified through our allergy testing. The efficacy rate for Alergovet Immunotherapies is around 85%. Most patients see improvements within a few months. Alergovet Immunotherapies have 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.

Administration and dosage

The first dosage for subcutaneous Alergovet Immunotherapy base in allergoids (Vet-Goid™) starts at 0.2 ml, one week after 0.5ml, and then one injection each 30 days. A treatment set with two vials lasts for 10 months.

For the perioral one (PETSLIT™) the dosage is one spry per day since during all treatment. A treatment set with two sprays lasts for 6 months.

Allergy is a chronic disease and every 10 / 6 months a follow-up vial is required for allergy symptoms 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.
