    Default Lab recommendation for allergy testing

    Looking for lab recommendations that do allergy testing and shots. Thanks!

    I think you would have your vet pull blood and then the vet would send the test off for allergy testing.

    Your vet needs to do the allergy testing, but I would strongly recommend you do the skin testing and NOT the blood test.

    Way too inaccurate!

    Vet needs to do and you use whatever lab they use. I know everyone says the blood test are too inaccurate but they worked for my pony and are lots cheaper.
