Results: Allergy Tests

The vet called Mommy today with the results of my allergy testing. When the vet started reading off the list, mommy started laughing. Can you believe that??

Here's everything I'm allergic to that they tested for:

Orchard grass, Fescue grass, Bermuda grass, Ryegrass, Ragweed, Pigweed/Careless weed, Lamb’s Quarters, English Plantain, Waterhemp, Box Elder/Maple, Oak, Elm, Pecan/Hickory, Cladosporium (fungus), Penicillium (fungus), Rhizopus (fungus), Stemphylium (fungus), Candida Albicans (fungus), Nigrospora (fungus), Phoma (fungus), Dog Hair, Cockroachs, Tobacco Smoke, Pork, Venison, EGGS, Corn, White Potato, Flax Seed, Tuna, Cod, Flounder, Haddock, Shrimp, Human hair/dander

Mommy has to change my food, change my kitty litter and she said in a couple of weeks I will start getting two allergy shots b/c I'm allergic to so much stuff.

Mommy said the absurd thing is I'm allergic to her. The vet has never heard of that before. She was wondering why it was even on the form until today. Mommy said they all laughed about it and said leave it to us. This wouldn't happen to anyone else. The good thing is, when I start taking these shots, I should start to feel better and maybe I won't be allergic to mommy anymore.

I'm still going to snuggle with her at night. That's my favorite part of the day.

Poor baby! At least there is something they can do for you. I don't know what I'd do if I were allergic to mommy!
Hugs, Wendy

Thanks, Wendy. The good thing is I'm "borderline" allergic to mommy. It isn't severe.

Thanks, Tabbies. I love tunie. Thankfully I'm not allergic to birds. I love me some dove. ;-) A baby robin dropped by today but mommy wouldn't let me eat it. She said it was too young and needed help gettting back to it's mommy and daddy. Drat! I bet baby bird is really good.

Mom once had a cat named Noodle, where every time she caressed his face with her hand he sneezed, so she understancs the whole "allergic to mom" thing. Hope the shots make you feels better!

Tosca, how are your allergies? I'm allergic to all dry foods, too, and it looks like we had the same allergy testing done. Instead of the allergy shots, I opted for the medication Atopica. It's been really helpful for me! How are the shots working for you?

Hi Lucy. So far it seems like the allergy shots are working pretty well. I did get over sensitive to them at one point and they had to re-do my protocol (mommy chose that big word). I'm doing well though. I don't like the shots. Sometimes they hurt a little, but mommy gives me yummy treats after each one. We didn't check into Atopica but we might do that at the next vet visit. I'm so glad to hear it's working so well for you.
