Q. Hi Is there a test to check to see if your dog is allergic to chicken or beef products.
DR. JENNIFER LADD, DVM
A. Yes, there is a test called "Liquid Gold" that requires 5mL of serum. You can test for food allergies, environmental allergies specific to your area, and insect allergies. The test is $300-$450, and provides a TON of great info. You can also have the company develop allergy shots for your dog based on their specific results. If you elect not to go this route, than the best way to test if via an elimination diet. Simply eliminate both of these from your dogs diet for 1 month. Be cautious with treats and ingredients that are placed in them. After one month you can introduce one at a time, and monitor your dogs reaction.
