Bee and wasp allergy testing and desensitisation

We offer allergy testing and desensitisation for dogs and cats that developed life threatening anaphylactic reactions to bee and/or wasp stings. Like in human medicine, bee and wasp desensitisation in pets is highly effective at reducing the severity of future reactions. We will also provide detailed advice on when it is appropriate to use an Epipen (adrenaline) and ways to reduce attraction and exposure of your pets to bees and wasps. Allergy testing is performed under strict monitoring with the assistance of a specialist anaesthetist.
