Animals in the wild generally do not have an allergic reaction to their food and environment. Our modern human world has however made it a little more complicated for our pets, with all the pollutants that we are exposed to in the air and the products that we consume - they often suffer from allergic reactions.
Animals, like humans, can be allergic to the food they eat, the products that we use on them, medication or their environment that they walk on, like grass or carpet fibers.
Are you at the end of your tether with regards to your pet’s allregies? Have you spent months, if not years, trying to figure out why your pet is suffering from an irritable bowel or non-stop scratching?

Find out what allergens might be influencing your dog’s health.
Animals who are sensitive to food or their environment, often experience symptoms that result in upset stomachs, itchy skin and other uncomfortable experiences. Today the most visited reason for pets to see the vet is for allergic reactions. The MuttMix Allergy Test is designed as a cost-effective easy-to-use pet sensitivity test to help you find out what may be affecting the health of your beloved pet.
“The test was developed to measure the highest level of accuracy, approximately 100 of the most commonly known allergens that your pet may be reacting to. We test foods and environmental factors and you will also find out which popular supplements and every-day household products your pet may be allergic to.” - MuttMix
Get on top of your dog’s well-being – and find a solution
You are looking for a long-term solution, and often top of the range shampoos, dog food and prescription medication only helps the symptoms.
Long term side effects of products used to minimise the allergies:
- Using prescription medication, steroids and antihistamines: - increased thirst, urination and hunger, susceptibility to infections, gastrointestinal ulcers, muscular weakness, abnormal behaviours, the development of Cushing’s disease, reproductive disorders, and some types of cancer.
- Designer Pet Foods: The nutritional value of the food does not always compliment the animal’s health.
By doing the allergy test, you will be able to identify what food / chemical / environment causes your pets sensitivities, and what to avoid in the future. Like people, all dogs are different, and may have allergies to food and products that are not common.
