ALLERCEPT



“After 3 months, my hearing assistance dog, Mr. Moore, has skin lesions that are finally clearing. Allergies were the reason he was not accepted into a guide dog program and have interfered with his important work for years. I now have every reason to believe he can continue helping the deaf and disabled for years to come.”

THE GOLD STANDARD IN ALLERGY TECHNOLOGY
Heska is a world leader in innovative solutions for veterinary allergic disease holding many patents covering its allergy products. Heska’s unique, patented ALLERCEPT® program technology can detect as little as 10 picograms (trillionths of a gram) of allergen-specific IgE and can be used alone or in conjunction with conventional intradermal skin testing to accurately identify the source or sources of an allergic reaction. Unlike many other serum IgE tests that can mis-identify allergy sensitization based on the false-positive detection of allergen-specific IgG, Heska’s use of the high-affinity IgE receptor assures that false positives resulting from IgG detection do not occur.

Superior accuracy with ALLERCEPT IgE testing

Heska has patent rights for use of the high-affinity IgE receptor to measure allergen-specific IgE in the serum of both animals and humans. Heska’s ALLERCEPT Panels are validated for dogs, cats and horses. The simplicity of ALLERCEPT tests and treatment enables veterinarians in general practice to develop a core allergy practice, ensuring that many more allergic pets can be treated or referred to dermatology specialists.

Bernie is one of many ALLERCEPT® success stories. With very serious allergic reactions to dust mites, the photos below depict the severity of Bernie's condition before treatment and the drastic improvements he made within a 6-month period of time once beginning ALLERCEPT treatments.

Bernie before sedation and shave down.



Bernie after shave down and before treatment started. He was on extensive pain medications and could barely walk without chewing himself.



Bernie after three months of treatment with ALLERCEPT.



Bernie after 6 months of ALLERCEPT treatment. Back to feeling like a normal dog again! He is now on year round ALLERCEPT injection treatments.
