Axiom Veterinary Laboratories has launched SLIT, a new sublingual immunotherapy treatment that provides an alternative way of administering immunotherapy to canine, feline and equine patients.
This treatment method, which has been used in humans for more than 20 years, is said to be particularly effective in treating pets that fail to respond to allergy shots and is a particularly suitable alternative for clients on a restricted budget.
The allergy drops – which are a custom formulation containing the specific allergens that are causing the pet’s discomfort – are prepared in a glycerin solution to provide antigen stability and are slightly sweetened to help with palatability and ease of administration.
Martyn Carpenter, director of Axiom Laboratories Ltd, said: “This method greatly reduces irritation and the likelihood of anaphylactic shock and can be administered easily at home by the client, freeing up consult slots and removing the stress that accompanies a visit to the surgery for many pets.
