Living on the Northcoast we unfortunately see so many of our dogs and cats with severe allergies. Allergies are a complex and confusing issue to diagnose and manage. We like to allow ample time to discuss your pets allergy issues and create a management plan that will control your pets symptoms and give relief. Previously Allergy testing required a visit to the specialist at the Goldcoast or Brisbane. Here at Racecourse Road we can now provide complex allergy testing on site. Once the test is complete your pet will receive a comprehensive allergy report of which we will, follow up and discuss the best treatment options for your pet.
