Veterinary Allergology

Allergic diseases are frequently observed in veterinary practice. With increasing standards in veterinary care, intradermal testing and allergen immunotherapy were introduced to small animal practice within the mid‐nineteen hundreds; later, serum testing for allergen‐specific IgE was developed for dogs, cats and horses. Although atopic asthma is rare within the dog and not much is understood with reference to rhinitis, atopic dermatitis is a frequently encountered disease in small animal practice and a focus of research in veterinary dermatology. Horses develop skin and respiratory disorders that are attributed to allergy. While recurrent airway obstruction, previously called ‘heaves’, has many similarities to human asthma, the best understood allergic disease in horses is insect‐bite hypersensitivity . An effective treatment for this disease still remains elusive. The dog, cat and horse, although data on the major allergens relevant for dogs, cats and horses are limited. In contrast to environmental allergens, studies evaluating food allergens in medicine are rare. Food rechallenges after elimination diets are notoriously difficult and not performed in a double‐blinded fashion.
